POETRY

N I C H E

Here’s a trick in English: The sound of me in Hebrew means “who” & who is “he” & he is “she”— I can’t understand. Half your body is in Ramallah, a woman in the window, three-quarters-sleeves the other half inside a quarter-queer shaking on thin, bare legs. Dawn, expressionless and always punctual, belittles the chronicles of these houses or so once you said. I want to pull back inside and dwell in charcoal. I want to cross again, your proof of absence, forsake what waits in language and landscape, choke on the tongue of all the darkness done.
