Ella Anna Pankatz

Rookie (East Germany / May 12,1942)

Home Turf

I bemoan that I am no longer green
My lush turf is now invaded by crabgrass
Like a silent charge of crustaceans
On my beach, swept in from the ocean
Strength is in numbers

For years I lay on my soft bed
Sank into the unblemished grass and
Became naïve in my oasis of peace
