My Sister's Doll - Poem by Sean Joyce

Standing on the edge of the river I threw it
I threw it and I knew

As far as my five year old arms would allow me
I threw it and I knew

Even as it left my fingertips I threw it and I
knew, no god of mine could ever bring it back

Standing on the edge of the river I jumped
my sister’s brother jumped

As far as my five year old legs would allow me
I jumped in and I knew

Even as I left my footprints I jumped in and I
knew, no god of mine could ever bring me back
