For the City G-d Built

An intention to halt imminent dehousing, evictions and continued occupation of East Jerusalem


this is the city that g-d built 

 
that every beam is kindness
 
that in the front yard grows a tree that belongs to the ancients and their children
 
that love is never a taking away
 
that in the streets now strewn in blood tears
we remember to pray
 
but first play
 
and so we forget our own house
and walk in g-d’s

neighborhood
