HIGHWAY EXIT SIGNS IN TEL AVIV

On this road we go

from the proper procedure

Turn left into the city, into

into the low buildings that seem

nothing like a metropolis.  Turn

right toward the suburbs

THE BRIDGE

We have been apart so long my dear —

I can see you on the other side, and maybe

you are waving, wanting to get across

to me, but I think you may be signaling

that I should get away, leave you, make

the gap larger, an unbreachable void.

    THE BRIDGE

    “We have been apart so long
    my dear-
    I can see you on the other
    side, and maybe
    you are waving, wanting to
    get across
    to me, but I think you may
    be signaling
    that I should get away,
    leave you, make
    the gap larger, an
    unbreachable void.”

    Beautiful short poetry
    book.
    Words that you can see and
    feel.

    “Under me people fly in
    their cars driving their lives between
    Work and home and I stay in
    one place…”

    I love the pictures that I
    see when I read those meaningful lines.

    Karen Alkalay-Gut,
    we can’t wait to read more of your amazing poems.
