close all the shops and sit in the shade

February 11, 2021

the acrid burning of hell money
mingles with the pouring of beer
the snapping of playing cards
the imploring singers deep in
plaintive Cambodian tunes

bring on the sad songs
and gather
and eat
and remember the dead
and pour the beer
and snap the cards
and implore
and sing
and welcome
the ox
