Ways of death / Lali Tsipi Michaeli

Ways of death


In my being there are cracks filled with death 
how much I lack 
in holy language this becomes 
“your servant” 
and cracks my knees 
catches the wrinkled desert earth 
thirsty for the life taken from her 
death speaks to her from within 
the darkness of passages 
death is inside it 
she is so quiet 
not yet knowing fear.



translated from Hebrew:
Michael Simkin
