—fading fast (indecisively left untitled, previously)








—fading fast




sleep on
the things
that matter

having no cares
about the world
like the otter

this is how he
studies the marshes
and rainforests

like too many
diktats leaving
them smothered

that's how i
clean forget
subconscious past

by being in the
present, i have
judged the last

that's how it
always goes
jibed or othered





(in our essence)



fading fast








untitled (true music)








untitled (former working title: true music)





as if one have
all the value judgements

in this—


tribulation period,



if only wind
instruments were
invented to share
a message, —


would souls
truly speak
in the present moment?



time & its insignificance





like metanoia
—a paradigm shift—
suddenly, anxiety
changing one's drift





from kabbalah
to phonetics
linguistics, semantics
hermeneutics of the Torah


from ancient

to the renaissance

what more can
one presage?









if a believer

prays to a false God

[of an othered religion]

permitted but








wronged sainthood






senile syllogisms & oblivion








Dead Names, Spoilt Milk.



Our Father who art in Heaven,


All false and


Evermore rather Untrue.


Your teeth are all dead names,


And faces,


Of spoilt milk.

I'm a Jew

“I'm a Jew”
The first time I said it
it caught me off guard
Why? Because it wasn't hard.
I'm not mikvahed or bat mitzvoted
But I know G-d's call
Saying “I'm a Jew” doesn't bother me at all
It's like saying my own name
it just rolls off my tongue
And for once I know that THIS PATH,
this path is the one.
G-d, I ran away from you,
so far, so fast
I hated how You were represented in my past
I didn't want to be Christian,
just do as I was told
Now I know why,
You blessed me with a Jewish soul.
Now I'm praying in Hebrew
I can CH with the best of them
My tongue remembers the Yiddish
that was stolen away from it
Now I cover my hair
I wear my tichel with pride
And I'm keeping Shabbos
Lighting the candles on friday night
I'm a Jew in my heart
And that's really all that matters
I'm a Jew, Mazal Tov!
And I couldn't be Gladder.

I plan to do a Spoken Word performance of this for YouTube. I will link it here when I do. :D
