bracing for the unexpected.....

Clouds darken with despair.

Thunder, a clap,

A scream for help

Jews held to the fence

Holding themselves

To brace for the unexpected .

Rusty hinges where a door slams,a lock clicks,

A child cries.

Goodbyes are set to arrive.

A tickle in their burning throats.

A cough.......................

Just a scream

in their frail farewell
