The Chinese Offer Fresh Food to the Dead

and now if you return to Daly City,
where he had driven you each Saturday

for five years for cheap and good dim sum,
for Metal Kuan Yin and chrysanthemum,

for sharp-clawed knuckles of stewed chicken feet,
yam cake with dark brown crust and starchy meat,

plump shrimp wrapped in scalloped dumpling skin,
you would ask for a table set for one.
