Blades of Ignorance


our hair 

splits

under 

terrorism like grass 

blades 

under 

desert  suns

 as Hezbollah  winds shriek and 

threaten

to display our 

bones 

for all the world to 

see

we call

come help us

to a world

who closes their ears

and pretends…

peace does not grow in 

Israel 

but…

if an olive grove falls in the valley

and no one hears

it’s echo

does that mean

it was never planted there

to begin 

with

?
