Aunt Eileen

The death of my aunt
came when I had been at the sea
and my pores were open

She entered quickly

Dragging shadows of other deaths
aunts, uncles, father, friends

All loud with the clanking
of the chains that still bind

Another on the list of fondly remembered family members added yesterday: Rev. Father Joe Strohoffer, unlimited font of care and joie de vivre
