Comparison

This is a mild curiosity for you
who saw the dead at Auschwitz
before being saved by the bell
but didn’t see Emmett
lain there as well: the footprint
of a Holocaust on the face of a sole son.
If you find the comparison tenuous,
why so? I want to know
what say the Herero,
from those who are left,
just what it is they call this
in their language.
