Two tiny embryos
Born only 10 miles apart
12-and-a-half-years between them.
The first, planned and loved,
She’s an English major,
A product of a sheltered upbringing.
She thinks she’s fucked.
The second, a surprise,
Forcibly responsibility for her father’s drink problem,
Consistently neglected by her mother.
She doesn’t know it yet but she’s fucked.
