Birdsong in the yard
The old documents tell about my great-grand aunts that they were born on the same day and died in the same month . They were twins and their lifetimes were short, four and five weeks. Their first names start with the letter A. What happened? Illness? Were they premature infants?
for the steel door
Outside the archives I whisper two names with A. There is birdsong in the yard and the sky is blue.
