Helga Deen ,1925-1943

Helga Deen  (1925-1943)   (Sentanka)

Mit achtzehn ermordet
Helga Deen im KZ Sobibór
Nur Tagebuch und Briefe

War alles was von ihr blieb
Ihr Andenken aber bleibt 

Murdered at eighteen
Helga Deen at Sobibór 
Only letters and diary

Was all that remained of her
But her memory remains

Helga Deen en Sobibor
Asesinado a dieciocho años
Sólo cartas y un diario

Fue todo lo que quedaba 
Pero su memoria sigue siendo

Fear of God

    Fear of God
The Crackling ice
Put the fear of God in you
When you see a
A crack under your feet
Run the length of the ice.

                                Loving Brothers

                           Hand hitting the face
                        Red burning titty twisters
                          Throbbing charley horse
                     Bone braking grizzly bear hug
               “Now, do you submit?,    .     .   .   . ”Uncle!”

Life Story

my new brother
begins suckling our mother
I drop her sparkly vase
dad looks on menacingly. . .
a nurse brings me ice cream

Salty Air

Warm nights by the sea Salty air enters windows Full moon's reflection Guiding light on the ocean Gentle breeze ruffles palm trees

Three Precious Gifts

Fill my life with love.
Gift of friendships rare and deep.
Back in my hometown.
Reunited with them all.
I will make my life here now.

Baby brother's back.
Once more in my life to stay.
Let me make music.
Write a poem,make a craft.
Use my talents I'm blessed with.

Silver crested star.
Santa says to be myself.
Do not waste my time.
Creativity should flow.
Use my hands,my mind,my heart.

The walk home

We paused in the shade
Of the cool, green, cedar tree
Ties flapping in wind
Satchels hung like saddlebags
We raced home like wild horses

Talk to your brother

Talk to your brother
His jealous rage scares me
He wants to kill me
I am a bombshell 
In the shadow of death

Bombshell: a very beautiful woman
