boyhood of 41 years
manhood of 28,835 days
shared bottles of tanduay between father and son
what of shared glasses of basi
between dad and daughter
girlhood of 36 years
life span of 604,440 hours
common loss
two jersey city townmates now barkada
put their feet up on a cloud above lincoln park

For my friend, R., who buried his beloved father today.  Love & light to the Ontal family.
