Little Sis

little sister sees an enigma
wrapped in a mystery posed
as a puzzle evading a key to
understanding the brother she
dotes upon, it is not to say
things are better this way;
there has to be a salutary
lesson to learn in it, surely

while he puzzles at her quest
her concern obsesses even-
mindedness; I am an open
book he tries to say and she
laughs waving away ordinary
explanations all too easily
