Larchmont Temple Chevra Torah

Questioning faith in the parsha

you shall flee

you shall flee though none pursues

you shall dig up graves

where no bodies lie

succour shall you find none//

you shall turn and turn again

mountains shall crack

pestilence erupt

trees shall burst and bleed//

you shall quake at the sound

of a driven leaf

you shall scour the sky//

you shall call and fall

and go on falling//

you shall wait in the shadow

of the broken towers

the very air shall burn//

all your pain shall have been

the price you must pay

for a blank ticket//

you shall have looked and not found

I will have forgotten the land

you shall have written without words

In the infinite sand//

you shall remember what is no more

you must reinvent a door//

I will have flown
