NICHT FALLEN

 

Hazira framed his picture. An obituary picture.

The fragile, broken frame was tapped over,

so it would hold for years to come.

 

In thick black letters, the writings on the tape,

that held together the frame, read

 

Nicht Fallen.

 

I exchanged the frame for one I bought in a supermarket in a near by town. 6,5 convertible marks. I brought two of them to Hazira. So that her past could safely be guarded behind the mass produced glass.
