Very very painful and skillfully rendered. When people go through tragedies like this the biggest heartache I believe must be the loss of the irreplaceable things like photos, drawings and things like that. Not to mention the poor pets. How sad.
Wow brother...of all the dark poetry you've written, I fear this is the one that touched me heart the most. Mind you, I feel for your sister's loss, but the sad story of those helpless animals grips my heart and begs tears from my eyes. Well told tale of sorrow my friend.
