Memories of Drancy

The evacuation commences
and siblings in days old clothes
scramble from their beds
To hold their mother's wings.
The Foreign born Jews already sick with fever
are beaten mercilessly
as their skulls crack a yolk.
And all the proud French Jews  
sing the anthem of their broken connection

Did you know...Jew is a racist term? Were you alive at sub a time? close but no Matzo ball. I apologize for my stringiness I had spagetti for dinner and all meal long I thought of the irony of thinking of remembering that I still remember shoving my handle into the sack of potatoes which was actually spagetti labeled brains on Halloween as I looked forward to Christmas.
