because that’s what they do

they say, oh how funny it is
that henry is charlie’s spitting image
and james looks just like daddy

no one ever asks about Tinsley

so sometimes i tell them
“yes and our baby girl had the look of her brother james.”

just so they know, we’re really two for two,
gardner and birchall, gene-wise

just so they know that she existed
just so they know that she still does
