they’ll grow up knowing gravestones

they’ll grow up knowing gravestones
and that you never run among the dead

they’ll grow up kneeling by her side
and tossing toys up to the sky

they’ll grow up being brothers
to the only sister that they have

with cards and flowers
and prayers and fundraisers

they’ll grow up fighting to include her
to explain her presence to landlocked friends

and they’ll grow up learning that love is always love
in whatever magical or boundless form
