Missing in Action



Father left home

on a navy mission

on this day

nine years ago

when I was almost one



He was captured

on Route 1

an hour south of the city

by moped.



That's all we knew.



This day

Mother prepares  an altar

to chant for his return,

offering fruit,

incense,

tuberoses,

and glutinous rice.



She displays his portrait

taken during Tết

the year he disappeared
