Can't believe I missed this when it came out. A fine POTD! Very grim and powerful. The short lines give the reader quick punches - most effective. The title with its several meanings is brilliant.

Dave, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! on POTD! This one is a graphic reminder that peace on earth doesn't reign in all of its "corners." The subtle emotion in your words are actually extremely powerful.

This is beautiful, Dave. The power of a single sound/smell/sight to trigger a flood of memories. As Daniel said, your rhyme & meter work wonderfully. I think it's because you varied each stanza, so the poem didn't become sing-songy. Nice job.

Beautiful job. I love being trapped in this nightmare-world.
