Part of the Story of Us

Dedicated to Robyn

I love you backwards and forwards,
as different as we are.   
As much I think we should be the sort
of friends each other’s kids call auntie
in the future.

Despite bond,
I feel as if I failed
because I haven’t convinced you
that my life isn’t pathetic or pointless.

I suspect you think I’m praying
(in some secret mind corner
I don’t acknowledge due to personal politics)
to have this atypical body  repaired
like a common household appliance
by someone in a long, white lab coat
who sports the letters MD after their name.

  1. I am not sure what makes you think she thinks your life is pathetic or pointless simply because your body is "atypical", because I know she doesn't.
