Bonhoeffer in Harlem
a man was lynched today
Emmet Till whistled, white
woman claimed at her, dare
he, hang him, holocaust
widespread, rights under rugs
people poisoned, prisoned
Walt Whitman great white shark.

Bonhoeffer returns to
Berlin, sympathizing
with genocided, tried,
plots to bomb Hitler while
entertaining girlfriend
and his guests giggling
in waterfall mist while
Jewish girls gasp last breaths
