Born

It is not easy to write you…
without answering history first,
which fails us,
you claim &
next, my reply: All that
time it didn’t, you were a thing needed
to be said,
clarified, recorded,
starting with this: Remember
when you kidded
you had a twin,
who followed you silently
into the world?…
but now, “she was never born”
(for some way of saying
you never loved).
It’s OK, we won’t remember
everything, the
calendar is useless,
life is always something else.
