Aunt has been spoiling me
something rotten. I know
she has her eye on me.
It would be better to look out
for my brother, who’s gone all weird.
I think his encounter with Father
has done in his mind. He has taken
to sitting in well-lit alcoves
and smiling beatifically.
I just have Tim, who is sagacious
beyond his years, our resident seer
of strange, fucked-up events.
