Gone

a house built with his own hands

twenty years of loving labor

 

a stamp collection

two sets of dishes; one for guests

 

three trousers, four overalls

a photograph album, his incense burners

 

a forgotten copy of the little red book

a portable phonograph, some vinyl discs

 

two beds, six straw mats, three bags of rice

their wedding pictures

 

one black mongrel  bitch,

wife aged 37; daughter 11

 

Sichuan, Myanmar, Aceh, Izmit

dreams, so many dreams

Gone!
