Discovering My Sister, Gretel

 

Longest night ever, I pray

for her safe return;

can't blink

or she'll be missed.

 

Behind poker-faced searchers,

I bite my lips,

open my eyes wide,

and push aside brambles.

Did she lose the breadcrumb trail?

 

Then – a banshee wail,

confused stillness,

echo of palpitations

and a bloody shoe offered

up for inspection.

 

All eyes follow a trail

of dark pebbles

from shoe

to confirmation.
