They knocked the door at four AM.
Police, a man, a woman
“May we come in?”
I knew before they said his name,
it’s been too long since last
goodbyes was said in absence.
Confirmation always carry uniform.
I remember how the Christmas Tree
was black that year,
and the Tsunami.
This is based on a true memory. On the morning of Christmas Eve 2004 the police came to inform us that my father in law had been found dead in his home. We have not had a Christmas tree since then.
