Life Story

Margarita Georgiadis, risking_enchantment

Life Story
He was born in a refugee camp in Germany in 1945.
He was 1 pound 8 ounces. 
He was a leaf of grass. He was lovely.
He was born dreaming his mother’s dream
of flying like a robin through the sky
and eating everything
that was pure and good and golden.
And then he smashed into a wall
and was dead, and the nurses
wrapped him up and put him
in the grave with all of the others.

My poem and the image by Margarita Georgiadis are from a series of poems and images published by EIL--escape into life.  To see those poems and the images, just click here.
