I am not my sister.
Words from the books curl around each other
make little sense
I read them again
and again, the story
settling into memory. Too slow
the teacher says.
Too babyish, the teacher says.
But I don’t want to read faster or older or
any way else that might
make the story disappear too quickly
from where it’s settling
inside my brain,
a part of me.
A story I will remember
long after I’ve read it for the second,
Education & Learning
conversation between two or more people as a feature of a book, play, or movie
the attribution of human qualities to a non-human thing
a recurrence of the same word or phrase two or more times
