      Poetry Submission: in a small dark room before the dawn


      5th lumbar remade
      by Yosef Tzafnat-Paneiach

      in a small dark room
      before the dawn, memories
      of treblinka and sobibor,
      of warsaw and tel hai.
      in iraq, david raziel dies--for the enemy.
      in america, uncomfortable questions--
      suppressed but never silenced.
      a victim, but a victor...arlosoroff, shalhevet, gandhi.
