7. Season of Realization

In 27 years I can count on my fingers 

The number of times I’ve seen you 

Family really wasn’t convenient 

Until we matured and began lives alone


You hunt for arguments in my writing 

Reminding me that you still are older 

Since age is all you have to hold onto

In the wasteland of separation you nourished.
