What The Word Holocaust Actually Means

Shoa—calamity—

That word is what

Religiously

Grouped children of

Survivors call

Their past; half of

The Jewish star,

Colored in pink,

Is mine because

Of how my mind

And dick seem to

Work together

(I’m gay, so a

Pink triangle).

But even still, though,

As I am an

American, still

I do resent the

Word history has

For what Nazis

Did: holocaust

Means “to burn whole”;

It does not mean

To cowardly

Shuffle scape-goats

Into ovens.

While World War Two

Germans made some

Vengeance weapons

—even stealth planes!—

First, they did not

Bring the world to

That threshold that

Means to burn whole.

Holocaust means:

What nuclear

Explosions do.
