Holland, 1945

I knew a boy once
who was in love with
Anne Frank —
he carried a picture
of her in his wallet
every day, for years.
He walked softer than
anyone I had ever met,
never said much,
but you could tell
he knew a lot about
roses and gunfire —
you could tell he would
never love anyone else.
