family ties

19 march 2011/13 adar II 5771

i wish
i didn’t make
myself

mother
of the movement
little sister
at the same time

both
are women
who are silenced

and me,
in your presence,
i am silent
now
unable

(stop)
in this moment
(what i meant was)
to get
(he did)
my words
(i said)
out
(but you don’t know)

in this sharpness
(what i want from you is)
here
(wait)
i saw
(but you don’t know she said)
my future
(this is not the right time)
and now
(please wait)
i’ve lost it.
