*seamus Heaney The Haiku Poet - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

college sick bay
i count the bells knelling
classes to a close

father crying
he has always taken funerals
in his stride

The baby coos
laughs and
rocks the pram

whispers inform
I am the eldest

the corpse

he lies in the
four foot box a poppy bruise
on his left temple

a four foot box
a foot for
every year
