Torah Portion: Pantoum by Miriam Sagan

Torah Portion

ark on the high seas
shaman down the well
mother of my mothers says
“give me children or I will die”

shaman down the well
digs and wolves might mate again
“give me children or I will die”
on a bloodstained cloak

digs and wolves might mate again
you didn’t know who you were
on a bloodstained cloak
or in what part of the story

you didn’t know who you were
between oasis and desert
or in what part of the story
a raven, or a dove

between oasis and desert
mother of my mothers says
“a raven, or a dove?”
ark on the high seas.
