Little Brother

It's my brother's 31st birthday this week.  Today, I dedicate my post to him.


You were tiny, frail and reaching with infant- blue eyes
When we first met
Right away I felt an urge for something solid to build up
And around you
The warm scent of milk couldn’t protect you
From the glass leaning in thick, clear sheets on the back porch
They shattered, efficient but violent
Just as I knew they would
I was only twelve-years-old

But I wanted to be your future

All my love,
