A Father Said To His Eighteen Year-Old Son...(JE #3)

________________________________________________________________________________________________


but only in a few of them
are they properly connected 
to their heads.
DON'T EVER CONFUSE 
VOCAL CHORDS FOR BRAINS.
 ....
 Max Ernst
(1938)
Advice to 18 year-old
Jimmy Ernst

 Like his father after him,
18 year-old Jimmy Ernst–
who was half-Jewish,
emigrated to the United States.

During his last two years as a teenager in Germany,
Hitler's thugs  kicked Half-Jew Jimmy
in the ribs whenever they wanted to
but he escaped further damage 
from the Nazis before emigrating.

Jimmy's parents weren't quite as lucky.

 Max, his  degenerate artist father
spent an entire year in a concentration camp
before emigrating to the United States.

Louise,  Jimmy's art historian mother,  
was an Auschwitz casualty in 1944.

He didn't learn of his mother's death
until after World War II ended.
