Mortality by Philip Hammial

When mother died
a man with a cloud took me for a beast.

When father died
I stood in a hole & spoke to a crowd.

When brother died
I had to get in behind the next one down.

When sister died
health was so sick you couldn’t buy money.

When I die
human shame will lose a friend.
