Cry

How long does the corpse feel burdensome
As long as the body rests on the shoulder
From home to the crematorial flames. So long
Chanting of Hari Bol. Images on empty walls
Garland, incense, peace, prayers for remission

Sorrow does not experience any vacuity. As the
Burden steadily recedes, tears reify. Spider's webs
Adorn the frame. Prior to wiping away the face
The griefless man efface one by one the dead soul's passion
Essence, reminiscenes and gems, all frozen emotions
