At weekly yoga class.
Two sisters, there each week.
Next to each other, happy and harmonious.
Could be twins, alike but different enough.
One comment starts the chatter all around the room,
How lucky they are to have a sister nearby to enjoy.
I nodded silently as I agreed,
Tamping pangs of envy down deep.
Then one by one … the others lamented over their sisters faraway,
I had a choice,
Bring down the entire room with “Bummer, mine died.”
And freak everyone the hell out,
Or keep quiet.
I chose the latter.
