Standing at Sinai with George and Regis

Regis Korchinski-Paquet

George Floyd
may your memories be a blessing
may we live now to bless your memories 
“we were all at Sinai”
but too many of you 
fixed your
eyes upon 
The Mountain
so desperately that 
you could
not dare imagine
at this moment uncontrollably 
can you 
look up
the thunder 
can you embrace
the unwritten
the unfinished rhyme
of g-d’s perfect storm
of your unseen ancestors
raining down
breaking apart the floodgates of heaven?
torah is a teardrop 
torah is a wave
torah is change
we are change
