sandbags against the doors.

Prayers were said;

It’s like he appeared out of thin air
Then breathlessly,
he gives you a Jimmy Stewart howdy do,

At Dunkirk
by Andrea Dietrich
At
Dunkirk,
where thousands
of stranded men
lined a bloody beach,
hope was draining with each
air strike delivered by the
unrelenting Germans’ aircraft.
Cold, starved, and injured men watched from shore -

For cutting short
My grieving—
When care
I more
Than self
So wear...
