Efi Hatzimanolis #240 Fortuna

Mum stands up
as they lower her
brother into the ground.
At the wake
I notice we are having a good time.
Life feels a temporary setback, a blow
fly under the radar, a joke
falls flat, then
a healthy tax return.
A year turns
on good days
like these 
by something in particular.
