a smooth sepia image:

'A' Block, Kitchener Hospital

I find two of you

leaning out from the second window -

both of you wear bright, white turbans

that halo you in the winter light.

The trees naked,

struggle to stretch,

to reach you, aid your escape.

I look closer and find more of you,

faint shadows, behind the pane.

Halos at different heights - some of you perhaps

sitting, gazing out at the sky,

the same sky that covered you in France

and home, safe,

in India.
