I Am Always Hungry

a person walks in a field of light

I am hungry for light.
I want the words to break
in their incandescence over me.
Also…meditating towards late breakfast,
the solid things of the world.
My hunger is within and without,
Which voice is Shekhinah?
Which letter is my own in all of Torah?
What simple food will keep me
from fainting straight away
in wonder?
