Day 328: Neves

there is a man
in the heart of keaukaha
who has a voice like sandpaper
he breaks tradition off the backs of children in song
he's a story there
to tell you
about your father
or somebodys grandmother
somebody fogotten
but you look like her
she has your hair
and your smile
she's got everything thats been forgotten
for a seacon you can feel yourself in her skin
he will tell you
her name is eliza
a kamakawiwoole
was your great grandmother
this is why we have tradition
this is what family is for
