Insiders & Outsiders
for D.B.A.

how is it that she could be
closer than my daughters are to me

closer than Marion, closer than Sonia
closer than my family is to me

as close to me- as close to her as underwear

people closest to me, like clothes I wear
she closer to my skin
closer to myself
closer to
my soul

Oh, God, I have two sons
as strange to them
as strange to me
as countries you cannot recall
where on earth they are located
