Japan, World War II, The Sugarcane Fields


The natural high and sweetness of the sugarcane fields gives way to row upon row of rushing spindles

Women cry in labor crouching in spaces they carved out to give birth in

Rustling and whistling, back and forth

Is it safe now??

Shield your babies from the flying round eyes above, whirling to dive into your rapid hollow to lock you away.
