listening to her favourite music,
i learnt to love it too, and thought
what it must be like, to read unheard-of
books, wear a different dress, even hat,
take up a strange habit, think things
in new ways. what could possibly be,
if i were literally in her shoes to walk
her road? my stillborn twin sister,
lover’s ex-lover, mom at my age,
doppelgangers in central asia and africa.
