Anthropomorphism by Mel Finefrock

For Cindy


The crape myrtle
now bears the pink blooms
my sister loves
like so many rings
adorning fingers
both too long
and too knobby
to be hers.

I reach out anyway
for a handhold, knowing
this contact
will have to do for now
and that she’ll meet one too
on her evening walk
a few towns North.
