Yes, I Will

     After The Scream by Edvard Munch

 

I want to break free from every mortar-brick

of temple-shrine and shokeling generations

of worshipers...worn repetitions of verse-psalm

praying to exterior remaining Wall of embodied

seed-flesh of unseen God that billows every passing

breeze. Oh birth-oath and silent kisses, reminders

of yeeud, a garment stitched-sewn in words from

the Mystical Cord of Creation in intricate layers

of wonderment growing in a seamless unity.

Yes I will, tailored to perfection.

 

 

 

shokeling—swaying in Yiddish

yeeud—destiny in Hebrew
