she is my sister
though I seldom speak of her

we grew up apart
in the same household

she did things
I never could

ate beetles
like crunchy granola

trained brown recluse
spiders to be more sociable

shot the dark sides
of everything in photographs

drove a locomotive
off an acrylic painting

when she swore in German
dogs followed at her heels
