why do you read my poems

sister tena?
i'm not saying anything you want tol hear
i'm betrayal
never deferential
totally disloyal
to our family
a husband
god and the church
you're the queen of who they wanted you to be
i'm the queen of who they never expected
i've suppressed my ability to love
you've suppressed your ability to rage
i don't care if you never read another poem
you're the best sister
the sister who has my back
the sister i count on
the sister i love.
