my heart keeps breaking
so I grip it and feel something hard
pressed up against it.
and I know. I’ve always known
but I know differently now.
I hear my family’s heartbeat
when I sleep and when I wake,
walking on the way and sitting at home.
Listen, Israel:
I place these words
between my eyes
and upon my heart.
