JIM DUBLAP
Echoes

A veil of scarlet drops slowly traced the contours of a faded photograph in the rigor mortis grip of an American boy with a German name, dead on a French battlefield. The soft strains of "Lili Marlene", riffed by as Marlene Dietrich replied to Vera Lynn’s "White Cliffs of Dover", while the distant thunder of guns marked the sanguinary advance of allied armies, come to free Europe from Hitler’s Iron Fist. Paris wasn’t burning, as the Fuehrer’s armies reeled back in defeat, and the Russians stormed into Berlin. Like World War I, this war proved again that the the war to end all wars may come only with the Apocalypse.

L.B. SEDLACEK
Cheery Tornado

My eyes have never seen such a sight -- a whirlwind of activity, dripping with smiles and glad to be needed. With the day’s end drawing near, he works to meet the deadlines, happy to be given a chance when others wouldn’t even let him through the door.
