IDENTIFICATION

A white room and a body on a table.
I stood waiting for the sheet to be removed.
I saw his frozen face and nodded a yes.
The identification had been approved.


In seconds, lives can be encapsulated
in fast flash-frames of memory, presented
complete from a glance to a nod of the head,
the life of my big brother now lying dead.
