There he sits,
Sifting memories in the quiet of the alley.
His heart,blackened from the ashes,
is deserted.
His story is incomplete,
cracked with pain.
Burnt is his soul, blackened by the fumes of rotting flesh.
Burnt, like the wisdom buried in his father's deep eyes.
Burnt, like the embers crumbling within him.

The author's comments:
This was inspired by the story of one holocaust survivor, who, like millions of others, found himself utterly alone in the world.
