Day 4: Red Fez

Last Monday, I attended a friend's father's wake. Though he'd been in failing health, his death was sudden. I picked today's tour poem, "Proper Burial" by Patrick Theron Erickson, well before last Monday. Questioning whether there is netherworldly punishment "for the indecent things / we have done", it has new resonance after last Monday's reminder of mortality. —Gerald So
