#NationalPoetryMonth – Day 14



we share
secrets and laughter
a love of snark
and Jay-Z
we fight
and it’s been bloody
but cross me
and she will
cut you
my sister
my heart

April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate, I’m going to post a poem everyday. This one is for my sister, who’s birthday is April 14th – a most fitting and deserved muse. This exercise in my love of words began last year, inspired by the wondrous Jason Reynolds and my writing promptress Jena Schwartz. It was fun and full of magic and makes me so excited to see what pieces 2017 produces. They won’t be perfect, they never are, but they’ll be here, every day of April. I hope you stop by and enjoy the words and maybe even feel moved to share some of your own.
