SIBLING REVELRY
(1/31/14)


she was
my first
love

who else
could it be?

those twisted
incestuous inclinations
led me instead
to torture her
with the usual
petty bickering
that only brothers
can bring

I must
have been
damaged

deranged

to harbor
such heresy
toward my sister
in a brain
so tormented

I couldn't show
any hint
of those fiendish
feelings

but
when no one
else

especially she

might notice

I would gaze
upon her

searching
her skin
for a better
face
of me
