It runs in the Family – A Portrait

the Undecided
neither round nor skinny
a savior of sorts
reliable hero when
the creator is
indeed
unsure

the Twins
security to
important tidings
to get to the gist
we must pass them
relentlessly

the Skinny One
never walks alone
comfortable in crowds
flexible
never
at the end of the line

the Loner
round and short
abrupt or
foreshadowed by intonation
the spoilsport to readers
the end of all things
