While it is
true Gilberte
was an only
child,
there were
two Gilbertes,
one possessive
and reddish
like father
and one thin
and medicated
like mother,
and a
third Gilberte,
brushed but
suffering
from
the other two
Gilbertes, and
perhaps a fourth
Gilberte, whitely
merciful
towards
all Gilbertes,
all Gilbertes,
fields of them,
perhaps
many more,
more Gilbertes
than
Gilberte
could
hope
to meet.
