next time –
i’m glad there
is one

lulu

one dozen roses
placed before his photo-
12 years alone

Adelaide

alone
the first man on the moon
steps into immortality

Andy

immortality?
a fruit fly in the glass
with over aged wine

Vida

"The pain felt in my foot is not my hand's,
 So why, in fact, should one protect the other?"
                                                Shantideva
