#2

To this day
I don’t like odd numbers
No, it’s far pettier
than you imagine
You see
my brother and I
used to fight
over this
yellow plastic bowl
normal, unremarkable
yellow plastic
grimy in the hard-to-wash edges
old
but it was Dad’s
and we wanted it
both
So the days were split
to placate our graceless causes
