The Funeral

In an unexpected way that never fails to jar 
it comes through with an immediacy:
a photo of faces still known to me
cousins now grown with their children
on a grainy surface of  facebook pixels
a head caught averted in a procession of black
my father making the trip over in time
placing a bough for his brother.

In memory of Bac Hung
