A Poem

January 6, 2022

Walking towards winter sun, facing
the old growth, oak forest,
I meditate; a memory arises
of that man in a shirt with the name
of a place the Gestapo had decided
to send my grandfather so long ago.
Shocked that this fresh new year should display
such a shirt once more, along with violence and hate.
My shoes are soaked with tears
glistening in the grass.
