The Weeping Parachutist
(Dedicated to Dr. Itzik Yifat)
The stones of the Western Wall are your wrinkles,
Young are Tombs of your buriden friends,
Your tears are choked with dust
Accomulate slowly
As fetuses, sprouting in the womb
Of women,
Until they fall into your arms,
Who held a stell helmet and a machine gun.
