A Few Words On The State of Contemporary Poetry

Mati Shemoelof (2020)

A Few Words On The State of Contemporary Poetry

In the world of a secret that waits to be revealed

a word from you will seed love in that place

there we were buried

 

Danger

All those years I wrote about the immigration of my parents

all those years I was migrating towards where they immigrated from

fell away suddenly, when I realized that I was writing about the impending future

and here I stand with a suitcase in one hand and my books in the other, like in a painting by Meir Pichhadze
