Mere Seconds To Say Goodbye

Where are the photos of them those strangers
three of their eight children who did not survive
bombing was it yesterday or was it seventy years ago
I know their names but not how they want them pronounced
where the stress goes what shorter form good
Does my face show distress I am a ghost finding out
how to find them by knocking on doors of rubble
picking up toxic phones listening for wheezing
sighing anything pieces of papers their signatures
what loops they use which way they slant
