We argue over half-closed Philosophy books at recess,

about what makes us unique.

 

I snap at them that if I could find one person - one other person - 

 

who has exactly my mix of Spanish, Hungarian,

Chinese and Filipino, been born in England but has

an Australian nationality,

I’d shut up.

 

Next to me, my friend asks.

 

 

‘What about your sister?’
