Death in the Time of Corona #96

My uncle escaped Nazi-occupied Austria
alone
trekked to Zurich
then London
and lost his parents.

He lasted through many careers
and many years
and through the rest of his family
and generation.
He saw them all through

and now
he is buried alone
unknown
his wife in another unhealthy bed
awaiting her fate.

Even in this testimony
he hasn’t a name.
Just another anonymous
ending
as we all
await our fates.
