  • The Sunday lamb cracks in its fat. The fat Sacrifices its opacity. . . . A window, holy gold. The fire makes it precious, The same fire Melting the tallow heretics, Ousting the Jews. Their thick palls float Over the cicatrix of Poland, burnt-out Germany. They do not die. Grey birds obsess my heart, Mouth-ash, ash of eye. They settle. On the high Precipice That emptied one man into space The ovens glowed like heavens, incandescent. It is a heart, This holocaust I walk in, O golden child the world will kill and eat.

  • Count the graves, Beheld on both sides of the battle lines, See the pain, Of families torn apart by death, Hear the cries, People dying alone in the dust, Wonder why, Such pain could be allowed in the world, Feel the tears, Wept silently by those who remain, Dream of life, Before the camps, the fire, the cold, Try to know, Terror they faced, forgotten by all, Understand, Those who were killed comitted no crime
