My father died last week.

I have been and will continue to write a cycle of poems about my family. 

However, please allow me a bit of time to pause and reflect.

Thanks so much for your support and understanding.

White Light

Do the dying tally hours

or cast moments into days?

Dwell in vicissitudes

or inconsequential dreams?

Can luminosity pierce grave’s finale?

Euthanasia #2

For  Min —

You didn’t go gently

I sanctified love 4 suffering

and peace 4 pain.

But U were not ready

2 give away UR last most vital life.

& I am not God
