I had a best friend
Her favorite color was green
And mine was yellow.
We bought dresses to match
For when we sang together.
Both younger sisters,
We had older brothers.
I fancied hers
But not she mine.
When we were 13
Her brother asked us
To meet on his driveway
That night.
He stole his mother's hairspray
And passed it to my brother.
A heavy mist entered their lungs.
Then it entered hers.
Her eyes rolled back
And I screamed.
She was wheeled away
In a car of white and red.
I was scared we would
never wear our dresses again.
But we did.
I wore my favorite color
And she wore hers
Both for the last time
As she lay in her coffin
Arrayed in green.
Based on a true story. Thank you Mrs. W for sharing your story with me.
