Translated from Hebrew by Rachel Tzvia Back

 

MY SISTER

 

Now we are refugees

from the life that once was

ours,

that abandoned us like slippery

ground beneath our dreaming

feet.

Now

in this other land,

the horizon is clear and blue,

the northern winds muddle

our memories

like sightless flies

and sometimes for hours

we can turn our blind

gaze away

from the chair beside us,

remaining always empty.
