Only a sour body smell was left

on the unwashed bed-sheets.

The lost limbs crawl at the quarry.

Aquatic plants spread in the empty space.

Only the eyes insist: sweat, shaven heads,

thermometers and spitting bowls.

And next to this the nurse, cursed, waited

to give his report, knowing that

death or recuperation were equally unwanted

to the camp commander.

Yelling was heard from down the soccer field.
