listen close to the roar of worlds colliding

and in moments when it gasps for breath

you will hear it murmur

"Go to those who know you"

it's not chance you will never know everyone

there is a reason

the grief you brought with you when you came

is too little for generosity

heed, or you'll have a lot of people, embarrased

and mildly surprised to find

that crying at a funeral is harder than it seems.
