Song Seven

songs are fading;

a prayer book is near

-- etched cover --

Tehillim. Interlinear translation.

The Psalms

the salve


saved? ...No! No!

( ___no...) answer for the Old Guy?

we don’t know; we won’t know

until the appointed time.

clearer now,

as Seattle clouds

roll in.

he knows ( ... He can see it ... )

It is clear in the gloaming,

unchanged by atmospherics.

Meshuggah. Goodbye Jerusalem.
