Where the sea
becomes the night sky
and the sky the sea

and pairs of boots
turn into the stars

and cologne the comets

A Kholem: A Concert in Celebration of Adrienne Cooper
/ Erev Aseret b'Tevet

Oh God, don't you see Daniel Kahn
touch his knuckle to the tears in his eye
and don't you see me shuckle in time
in my seat near the back pleading
sholem please sholem oh please
oh dear God please sholem

Her eyes track my finger as I reach out
and trace a line down the front
of her buttoned shirt

If she's anything like the paper
they gave us in art class
I'll find a rainbow


I thought I saw your fingers
but it was just the edges
of my scarf

I sit up in bed and
look at my bookshelf and
feel that it needs just
a little adjustment and
think of a stanza re:
how I'm resisting but
then I walk over and
scootch it away from me
and to be honest,
I feel better now
