My Sister

My sisters
Tenderloin dope fiends
Loud, Crazy
Collapsed in Despair
Offering body in trade
Thinking it little worth
Begging and Plaintive
Angrily Demanding

Drunken falling
Sidewalk sprawling
Nodding heroin dreams
Hitting speed
Passed the fuck out

Face collapsed
Twice their age

I love you.
You are beautiful.
Someone's daughter.
Someone's mother.
My sister.

I don't mean in potential.
I don't mean on the inside.
Just beautiful
To me.
