My Thoughts, Dedicated to Chit Phumisak

Legacy of a Poet

A day of remembrance, 
Even within the dwindling memories of the past,
Thais speak his name, cite his accomplishments, a hint of a distant sad past, 
Shedding tears. echoing a face that seems faded, 
People recalling his poetry, some into melody,
Chit, a man of weakness who struggled with his society, against oppression,
And yet some remember the immortality of his name. 

An act of disobedience to Thai norms
