overly-vague neutral milk hotel fan poetry dedicated to family drama


I ate my brother
Inside of our mother's own womb
But I could just stomach a rib
So she made (it/him) a sister
And kept her for ten years
Cause two proved to be too much
And we needed her to be less like us.

But it turns out she birthed a keeper
I tousled his hair for (twenty) long years
Then I left for college...
And marriage... And divorce...
While he grew less empathetic.
So I needed him to be less like our dad
When *I* should have been *more* like that
But I couldn't walk that path
So we both took our own...
