The Shape of the Shofar

it is a wonder 

the shofar
is shaped 
like the inside
of an ear
 
because at the moment
we are blasted with sound
 
and our whole world becomes the ancient voice,
longing
calling
demanding
 
we are meant to listen to whom is below noise
 
and there, underneath the usual commands
and allegiances
 
is Torah
listening and weeping
in all the invisible, eternal ink
