Tangihanga

I knew I had photos somewhere on my drive.
Snuck across the road for an hour while no one was there and sat with Aunty Poppy. The body arrived home late last night.

"Wake her up Mum so she knows we're here"
"She's not waking up mate. She died remember"
"Michael Jackson died"
"Yes he did"
"Do you think he's seen Aunty Poppy yet?"
"I'm not so sure they're in the same place"

I won't make the funeral because of work and I feel a bit sick about it.
