the souls of old things

this past weekend, i found a box of dolls
i've had since i was a little girl.
i had many more...
but now have only three.
when i went off to college,
my younger sister took over my bedroom,
and my collection of dolls.
she wrote her name on each one with marker.
even today, when i look at these dolls, i think of this
and wonder why she did it.

Poor dolls. My sister used to cut their hair off. Needless to say, I was a protective mother to them.

she did that too. even though these dolls have been living in a box all this time, at least they have all their hair and are "tattoo-free".

My sister didn't do that, she just chopped off the hair of my dolls. I guess little sisters want to 'claim' their older sister's toys?
The photograph is lovely...
