Barrio Judio / Poem by Zana Coven

Poem by Zana Coven
 
 
Barrio Judio
 
Silence!
Behind the walls
Invisible presence
Breathe in
There is no one
But my ears
Do you hear it
The kids play
Do you hear it
Old grandparents
Chat up
In the old kitchen
A mother
Prepare candy for
La hanukkah
Smells, scents
In the yard
They fill silence
In Yo yo yo yo
I see a hand
Petting grenades
Still don’t grow up
My world
Invisible
Cry…
