I watch my sister from the porch,
her long hair spilled on the grass
like when we were children
Today she is lying beside her husband.

and she laughs at something he says.
I can barely hear them, but she is smiling,
and the sky overhead is pale blue
with white clouds floating
like sheets drying in the wind.
Here’s what’s next.
