Leo Yankevich (October 30,1961 / Farrell, Pennsylvani)
After the Expulsions
The old Romanesque church in Petersdorf,
closed since the Germans left the neighbourhood,
crumbles in the pouring acid rain.
Above, no bells toll for its dead; but stain
upon stain marks the stones where Mary’s scarf
rests at the bare feet of its heavy rood.
