Poems that attempt to explain the physical, emotional, and spiritual pain of those people the author knew and grew up with in Bavarian Germany, 1945-56, in several Displaced Persons Camps. The ‘sacred fool’ is anyone who survives the crucible of pain, shame, and indifference and finds him/herself victorious in often unrecognized moments and ways.
