Best Friends

Golden sunlight streams through the little window.

Our heads are bowed so close together

that the same ray of sunshine highlights our hair.

We whisper, then giggle.

The two of us act so much like young schoolgirls

that no one would ever guess

we are mother and daughter

simply painting each other’s toenails.
