As the first bomb fell in 1939

Location

Kids stayed home on September first.

Hide. I can hear the planes.

As the basement leaked gaciating air...

I hold my baby. He shivers.

White noise gone, baby weeps, unaweare.

Silence ignites flames; soldier locates pacifier.

No son will forget bleeding Westerplatte.
