His grandfather died

An ox, he was, they said

His mother

Alone in China (a country of millions)

Hurtled abuse

Through the screen

In the form of criticisms

About his face

And its lack of expression

The loss of someone you love


Especially when you’ve been divided

By continents and years


A wasted emotion

Becomes a force

That’ll knock you


Any chance it gets

Don’t let your guard down

Or you’re done for.
