The Miller Girls Came to Town

Relatives of seals are dribbling
our hearts on cold mousy noses
Acting interested in what drinks
we choose, and why 

I hear myself ask one
"Do you have a jacuzzi in that bag?" 

They pack all their flashing plastic
carnival prizes into a particularly sad cardboard box
and they leave 

Stepping over my embarrassing twin
who is on the floor waving a chicken wing
like a flag
