sisters

they always asked
if we were twins
dressed alike
outfits mama made
Sunday clothes
hair in ribbons
white gloves
smiling photos
with time we’d
express ourselves
uniquely
yet sometimes
caught wearing
the other
one’s clothes
but in
looking back
it was always
patent leather
shoes we liked
the most.
