The Wannsee Confernece is when 15 SS/Nazi leaders got together at a hunting lodge to discuss The Final Solution. The facts are all true . Sadly.

wannsee

over the span of an hour
a small get together
a garden party held indoors

while the winter in their hearts
rages outside
at odds with the
checkerboard opposites

fifteen men discuss
resolution

cold meats
carved and positioned
just so
tidbits to tempt the palate
while visions of meat hooks
dance in the heads of
these legends of the fall

absolution
bequeathed by each

wine flows thick and red
over thick lips and sharp teeth
carnivores at the conference
held just after Pearl

after presents are already
bought and opened
and yet new gifts
gleam in the offing

resolution
absolution
final solution

toasted over bone china
and genocide dessert
