So, mi main primo, most decidedly while drunk, confided a secret wish to see some of his poetry, which he probably also only showed me under the duress of brown liquor, translated into Hebrew. How can a man refuse such a thing? Esto es para ti, vato.

הוּא הָאוֹהֵב
אֶת הָאֲפֵלִים וְהָעֲצוּמִים
—אֶת מְתִיקוּתוֹ הַשְּׁחוֹרָה הַשְּׁנוּנָה
שֶׁל הַרּוּם הַכֵּהֶה הֶעָבֶה, אֶת
בְּשָׂרָוֹ, הַסָּגֹל כַּחֲצוֹת, שֶׁל
הַזַּיִת; אֶת הַלַּיִל.
 
הִיא הָאוֹהֶבֶת
אֶת כָּל הַחַיִּים, הִרְהוּרִים.
שֶׁל שִׂמְחָה. שֶׁל צַח וְאָדֹם,
כְּעוֹר מְאֻפָּר, הַנִּמְתָּח
עַל הַדָּם הַזּוֹרֵם הַנִּצְרָב
 
עַל־יְדֵי הַלֵּבָב הַלּוֹהֵט
 בְּיֶתֶר־חֹם    
   וְאוֹרָה.
 
הֵם הַפְּזִיזוּת שֶׁל שְׂרֵיפַת פַח אֶשְׁפָּה.

  1. This is as badass as anything I could’ve hoped for. It’ll be hard to top this, so I guess it’s all downhill from here. But seriously, thanks.

  2. It’s all been downhill since we dropped hot and screaming from our mama’s bellies. But sometimes there’s a thing worth taking in as you roll down.
