Kinship

If we were siblings,
I’d sneak into your bedroom, and
We would dream together
Until sunrise.

Then, we could
Pick yarrow from fields –
Acres wide, where
No one else is looking

For a sunshine-filled day, and
Quiet time shared between
Two so-alike souls.
But, you have

Four legs instead of two, and
You might be inclined to
Pee on the yarrow,
Instead.
