The Worst Thing

Slurping up the last of my frozen yogurt,
I overhear someone say,
'Being a Simese twin has got to be
The Worst
Thing 
Ever.'

And no one laughs
because it's not a joke.
It's just meant to be very sad and
very true.

Yet
I can think of
one hundred things
worse than
living alongside Tippi,
than living in this body
and being who
I have always been.

I can think of a thousand things worse.

A million.

If someone asked.
