Brother

My Brother and Me.

Hot country summer

We lived for days

down a cheap

slip n slide.

Loud and lewd

Daring each other

faster and faster

Parents peaking out

secret smile

shared by all

Later I lamented

Ditchdigger or astronaut

They’d always be prouder

of you than me

Older now

I agree

Ditchdigger

or astronaut

A lifetime with you

Taught me all

I need to know

Of kindness that cuts

to bone
