Some Facts About Stalingrad

  1.In 1942 and early' 43, in the city, the sky was
      bleached bed-sheet white each morning.
2.All day long, as I carried the souls across it, that
sheet was splashed with blood, until it was full and     
                bulging to the earth.
    3.In the evening, it would be wrung out and
    bleached again, ready for the next dawn.
4.And that was when the fighting was only during
                     the day.
