Ritual To Saturno Yeye Or Close Ghosts - Poem by jia shuixing

you burn something and intone the names of everyone you've lost

you make light a bit
and the laughter is almost as unbearable as the pain

you leave and commit yourself to not look back
(to make the moment what it is)

and anyway who's even There these days
we have decoded the Moment away

the difference is that here is doesnt matter

Topic(s) of this poem: death, memory
