“What are you?”

 

My father’s lips form words that spell stranger to my ears.

Foreign and uneasy on my tongue is to him, home.

But how is his not my own?

My mother’s fair skin a contrast when our arms align.

A friend of mine mistaken for her daughter.

“You don’t look alike at all?”

In this instance two halves don’t make a whole.

Mixed.
