“Suspicion” and “Survivor” by Clara Ray Rusinek Klein

Suspicion

In the airport security line they frown,
staring,
whispering.
Ahmed
sighs,
staring
back,
head
high,
staring.
They frown in line, the airport security.

***

Survivor

Grandpa shivers, remembering trains, showers, bodies,
smoke
rising
from
ovens,
smoke
instead
of
people,
smoke.
Remembering trains, showers, bodies, Grandpa shivers.
