Guest book
four years after the great liberation

(from a photo in the New York Times)

barefoot
in shorts
and a ragged tee,
four,
no more than five
years old,
standing behind an
American soldier,
eyes bright and wide
with fear,
hands
over his ears


    the caption reads
    gunfire
    is heard nearby



child of
war

child of
our war,
yours and
mine
