Aside

כנפיים

Image

My organs, soul and mind
Inflate and ascend
Until my toes scrape the ground
And I grasp and gasp for firmament.

The roundness of my being
Juts into reality
Until sharp edges bleed
And ooze memories –
Today, yestermorrow.

I bat my wings,
Rusty and metallic,
My burden and my hope,
I fly south –
Vision obscured –
Rain beats, tears obliterate –
Show me the ark,
An abode of my own.
