'Kristelnacht'

 

night of broken glass...

fragmented unreality

person splintered

broken by hatred

for being me...

 

violence personified

in crimes of

state...fascism is a

harpie plucking

flesh in forest of the fearful...

 

synagogues...places of worship

ruined like humanity...

extinguished by

deep darkness of the

predatory hating mind...

 

it went on...it went on

for that night and onward

the scourge fell

shadows mutter “anti semitism”

cursed in creation

 

are the fools

continuously

passing by

on the

other side...

 

George Coombs
