I am very grateful we get to study contemporary poetry. It’s like music, if we only listen to dead composers, we never accustom our ears to new sounds. We end up missing up a lot!
Michal Tamuz

Oy! I always thought “shiver” was a Hebrew word!
Nancy and Brad Bell

The mystical Pardes?
Heather Silverman
53:10
Ooh, I like that allusion!
Dr. Dorothy Greenbaum
54:16
I definitely see a suggestion of the mystical Pardes and the seduction because of the possibility of an encounter with the divine
Stuart Stanton

What date?
Leah lynn Golberstein

I pressed the hand by mistake-cuddling with my dog and multitasking !
Ed Grossman

In some of this, he resembles Alterman in protest..
Lynnie Mirvis

Eyal Efrach, Naftali Fraenkel and Gilad Shaer kidnapped and mrudered at Alon shout in Gush Etzion

Was it Racheli Frankel?
Ed Grossman
01:11:53
RK would likely want to keep comments short....
Lester Bronstein
01:13:11
Wieseltier has to be referring directly to par'shat B'resheet, where God tells Cain that "your brother's blood (actually "bloods") cries out to me from the ground." Here the poet says that blood doesn't "speak." It's not words. It's just blood, and only words can achieve "arrangements."
Heather Silverman
01:13:24
Exactly!!

Sarah Schachter
01:22:04
a good read, but very hard read
Dr. Dorothy Greenbaum
01:24:20
the way out is to follow the example of Rachel Frankel
Ed Grossman
01:25:01
Also there's tight poetic style in the parallel language at the beginning of lines 6-8, and for lines 9 & 10. More formality of structure.
Heather Silverman
01:25:19
Last 2 lines also rhyme
Barbara Saunders
01:30:46
reduction ad absurdum
Barbara Saunders

If the poem was written in 1978 that was before 1982 Lebanon war.
Dr. Dorothy Greenbaum
01:35:00
consequence
Audrey Asher
01:35:15
not contradictory but bizarre outcome
Mona Fishbane
01:35:41
Yes, Dorothy, consequence. One can lead to the other—so beware of your politics, etc!
Heather Silverman
01:35:58
False equivalents. The 2 lads are contiguous, but that doesn’t’t necessarily lead to the conclusions that are drawn
Ed Grossman
01:36:00
It's the same logic of Lebanon being part of Upper Gaiilee..no boundaries..
Rhea Dorn
01:36:26
Because one follows the other does not meant is inevitable/natural.
Sheldon Dorph
01:37:04
no one is innocent in the process of justifying hate and war. at each stage even the religious part is of the esicration of the image of God ..humaity
Marilyn Bernstein

Bells of gray crystalBreak on each bough—The swans' breath will mist allThe cold airs now.Like tall pagodasTwo people go,Trail their long codasOf talk through the snow.Lonely are theseAnd lonely and I….The clouds, gray Chinese geeseSleek through the sky.
