Hitler’s Bathtub

..

Can you wash
off sin?
……..(out, out,
damned spot)

How much struggle
       ……..(Mein Kampf)
goes into
one bubbled brain?

How many showers
does it take
to forget
the ones
…………of poison,
the way the world
looks
through mass
graves
and tattooed
…………….veins?

  5. No, you cannot wash off sin. How many showers? There is no number for that, either.
    Love your parentheses!

    I love these sections:
    “How much struggle goes into one bubbled brain?”
    “the way the world looks through mass graves and tattooed veins?”

  7. I like the notion of washing sin away. I find it interesting to see what people wrote this time, you?
