after losing her childhood
in Slovakia, would it ever end

she imagined it would,
though she imagined life
in a number of ways

she applied those ways
to Ontario

on the banks of the Grand River
her Nazis cavorted

and when she died
I imagined her walking

down the aisles of Food Basics,
looking for foods she enjoyed

when she was a child in Slovakia
