My Sister Poem by Maya Hanson (mye3)


Staying up late
sitting in your bedroom
making the wall shake on purpose
and watching Ryan and D-Trix videos

Laughing our heads off
sitting in the sun
at the Minnesota beaches
where we grew up

Shaking it on the dance floor
with Ben, Joe, and Julia
Oh, I knew when you left a while
you'd never leave me for good

Sitting at the kitchen table
after school
playing music till our ears hurt
and singing along

On the trampoline
in the summertime
spending all day
careless and free

Playing games for hours
you groaning the whole time
laughing at our mother
in her coat, scarf, and gloves

Open Gym on the weekends
playing saddle the horse
going for a hundred and one
and making it look easy

Falling in love…
oh, the falling in love…
and never getting to hear
what we wanted to

Dreaming our dreams
in the uneventful suburbs
going to Juilliard and the big city
living on a farm, the cat lady without the crazy

Dreaming our dreams
Imagining the impossible
And laughing our heads off the whole time
Living our memories
