Lynn Strongin
Munich, 1941

By what depth of imagination can one plumb this time?
Caskets borne in two-by-two             ten-thousand by ten-thousand.

Ripped-off shrouds
shawls floating                 window-shutters fluttering
revealing windowpane, cracked shoulder bone
light let in
to source to lather & scrub:    lime basins of churches & temples where seraphim & cherubim

Apologies to Wm. Blake for the graphic!
