recalled her candled cakes

haunted by Holly, your sister,

you never ever saw her

– still, you so missed her.


deep your grief, scary

it’s cause and timing –

desolate you sat on stairs.


abyssal emotion uncovered,

spooked by age similarity

–  four, same as big brother.


recalled her candled cakes

each April Fools Day;

no crying now she makes.


fondly regarded even still,

considered name tattoo,

– void she cannot fill.


against biblical hope

recently you turned –

turn true the telescope.
