Remembering the Holocaust ~

Seventy Years Later
Auschwitz

One Sunday morning in Munich
Seventy years later 
I saw six suitcases painted white 
Standing on a sidewalk 
Each with a rose stuck on 
And nametags. 

People came past 
Stopped, bent over to read 
And continued on with stooped shoulders— 
Wrenched from Sunday calm.
