I’ve known him 15 years

it was decades ago, a party at my brother’s house. food

booze, conversation and a friendly face. she was enthusiastic

like a well fed puppy and I was glad

for someone to talk to. somehow

it came up.  “I live out west. yes, he’s my brother.”

“Really? You’re kidding! I’ve known him for 15 years

and I didn’t know he has a sister.”

like the sudden eclipse of the sun, there are some

realizations that occur during the most mundane interactions, leaving

no words to follow.
