the strength of look alike ancestry and decendants is strong.

Cradles of Sound

peach coated you wailed,
pale puffed dove cheeks

spanking new, and yet
I’d seen you before,

before your eyes opened,
before you were weighed

and measured and poked.

you were in grandma’s sepia’s
in the girls in the women

not the kid in the picture, unrecognized,
the one without the gene.

my cousins and I were shiny black
and whites, pre-Polaroid babies.

you are digital, on-line, telephoned

I HAD seen you before,
in my shoebox albums.
