Next of Kin

Looking at the photo,
I saw myself in you
Same jaw and nose
Jutted outward defiantly
Hoping that I could
Crack the code
Of your mysteries
Wondering if we shared
A secretive nature too
Poker face, blank stare
Doesn’t give me any more clue
Than the coat clutched close
Against your throat
From a fierce wind,
Than the documents
Written in illegible ciphers
Than the tree that stood
Anywhere you chose it to be.
