Half brother, I remind people
But sometimes I wonder
Why does it matter?
The quiet ping on my phone
Only reminds me of our distance
Not at all
Jokes are lost between the cracks
Riddled in our conversations
I read everything you write and yet
I still don’t understand
Do you know what I'm trying to say?
My big brother - now without legs
Once upon a time you told me to stand tall
Over the din of our distance
This is what I must remember
That we still hold half of one another
And half is more than none.
