‘Nother Me (hour 23, prompt 23)

“Who are you playing with?”
I’d ask my baby boy at play
The answer that he gave me
Blows my mind unto this day
He’d look up with a smile, and
“‘Nother me,” he’d say
My jaw just hit the ground
As he turned back around to play
You see, my baby was a twin
A fact that he was not aware
And ever since his birth
I’d catch him talking to thin air
This was the first time he was able
To put it into words
That he was playing with his twin
Who’d died weeks before their birth.
