bracing for the unexpected.....

By , Hillsborough, NJ
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








eyes.
