We are tiptoeing around each other
quietly: I know the reason for my
mother’s slouched shoulders and 
why my father tells me to pray the
rosary before going to bed (I forget
to, but when he asks I say ‘not yet’)

you are living with a child—though
she resembles a young adult—but
still a child how she clings to the
covers before sunrise and her timid
nature. you must have pitied her
when she cried over phantom
bruises you could not see on her
skin
