It makes the most sense
that young children keep in touch
closest to the dead

from start to finish
they know each relative to
places they had been

the same as when friends
rejoin after months or years
they remember when

they saw each other
last—and even if it feels
it had been longer

they know it was just
yesterday—what we awoke
to find this morning
