Sitting/Standing: Shiva After Anti-Semitic Terrorist Attack

shiva is not eternity


and if its end is marked

with a walk


then our bodies are not meant

to sink into the ground

until the next beginning


we are the beginning!


and the discipline to create

our own answers 


to speak and shout life

to remake the end
