#375. max and yetta (ldw2

lower east side
hard buzz
labored middle
knowing everyone
is here with me frantic piece
work peace the best that can be done?

i can smell the burning clothes
still i share the sorrows

    It seemed strange to me that so many images could be packed into this poem…but I saw myself seeing images of immigrants to NY…the life they lived and some sense of the holocaust..probably read too much into it…but that’s what I saw in the poem.
