Ritual

candles lit against dark background

So many voids

the world full of them.

Unknown relatives

 

in mass graves.

Or did they survive?

Still lost to family here.

 

Their bones, in the vast

ritual of music unplayed,

like violin bows taut.

 

All our unstrung lives

saved by utterance.
