What is your family?

A criss-cross collection of skin-colored twigs

They’re all related by blood, because my parents are siblings

Grimes and everyone who tweets at her

Raindrops on a long migrainey summer day

The cousin-witches of the live animal stores in Jackson Heights

The only people who call you on the phone so that it like rings and stuff

The face-crab zombies in Half-Life 2

I don’t know where they live

A collection of cucumbers and iPads in ice
