GENOCIDE EATS THE LAMB

Right there,
in this photograph
of hands reaching,
genocide eats the lamb.

The neigbors she grew up with are busy killing her brother, there in this photograph of hands reaching.

This will be explained to her grandchildren, long after all the hands and the remembering of all the hands, are over.

This photograph will be denied, just as she will be denied, just as she will remember, a hand reaching, and one more and one more becoming all the hands reaching.
