Siblings 2

We were caught together
Rare
At one of those events
Where
Falling back on your own resources
Can damage your spine

We were all there
Holding our own
Holding onto our own

But
we have never really been all there
and even now
are instinctively aware of exits

Around the table
I feel our nothing
Hear my empty voice
