The Book of Questions

Leaving the Levant,
you brought with your papers
endless questions that you and
your assemblage of mythical rabbis posed.

The space forming the silence, the void, the oblivion, the exile
and the emptiness merge with their antonym partners
to form the geography of
your hope

Answers are secondary
as your queries about
the limits of words and writing
lead to a place of comfort in a world of uncertainty

You join Kafka and Celan
in their journeys with
responding to
the disquietudes of existence
