Your heartbeat that day, too close together and

punctuated with crackles and pops;

sharp fits of joy,

too frantic to be allowed.

You are gone.


I was with you on this day throughout my life,

and the empty sky I feel of your loss

shakes and cries out tonight;

a choral joy of light and sound,

tattooing your presence on the back of my eyelids.

You are here.

Rest in peace, (Aunty) Karen Jane S.

I love you.
