Bomb Damage

Seventy years after the event
aware that death was at the door
and to get it off his chest
my uncle confessed
there’d been a fling with my mother
consummated on a visit
to his bomb-damaged home.

This would have taken place shortly after
the day when I was found there on a bed
buried under a blanket of ceiling plaster
trying to get it off my chest.
