April 30


Of themselves
the facts are banal

Eva Braun
born February 6th 1912
in Munich

met Adolf Hitler
in 1930
while working as assistant
to the court photographer

entered his household
in 1936
and became his mistress

married him
on April 29th 1945

committed suicide with him
the following day

Of themselves the facts
are utterly banal

But what might
a Shaksespeare
an Aeschylus
have made of them
