128. Imitation Is The Sincerest Form of Flattery

by Karla Dorman - Burleson, Texas

It's bad enough
that Katrina stormed out of the room
ripping, snorting mad
danger simmering in her dark eyes
throwing things aside
in her sudden display of fury

Rita, her little
sister, unobserved under the bed
was watching with keen
interest: she, who wanted to do
everything that
big sister did, learned her lesson well

She's on the exact
same path Katrina was on, and will be
remembered for
the stress she is causing for those who
are living along
an already storm weary coastline
