Memories of Drancy
Rossant

The evacuation commences
 1
and siblings in days old clothes
 2
scramble from their beds
 3
To hold their mother's wings.
 4
The Foreign born Jews already sick with fever
 5
are beaten mercilessly
 6
as their skulls crack a yolk.
 7
And all the proud French Jews  
 8
sing the anthem of their broken connection

Did you know...Jew is a racist term? Were you alive at sub a time? close but no Matzo ball. I apologize for my stringiness I had spagetti for dinner and all meal long I thought of the irony of thinking of remembering that I still remember shoving my handle into the sack of potatoes which was actually spagetti labeled brains on Halloween as I looked forward to Christmas.
