caro cugino (dear cousin),

we never did discover
the meaning of life, but
I did discover you
and that’s a fine second best.
my blood’s in your
we think the same
thoughts in two different languages
it's this rock we live
our lives on
thicker than the atlantic
that keeps us apart--it’s
called family, brings us
any day of the year
I can walk in and
lay my head
on your couch.
