Sister Across the Water

So perfectly sad:

My sister across the water must

Sleep with a fist for a pillow.

Victim-electric, she may

Have beautiful features:

If you look upon her,

Please do so

Without prejudice,

Without intention,

Be neither intimidated

Nor intimidating

(There can be no honesty there).

Dust from the past is

Still dust,

Still past.
