Family Formation

For Gabo

MAY. 24 2016
at National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institutio

I remember my extended family
A patriarch and his wife and children
Grandchildren, teen toddlers
Gathering for a big feast

Today they are done
No more patriarch, destroyed
By unlawful wedding 
Unsettling divorce
Drugs, disease, death
Forgotten dreams
Ignorance

The colonel was my grandpa
He died and life goes on
For everywone to live
In solitude.
