An urban Jew –
A radical iconoclast.

An American.
Who can’t bear to see his country torn apart
By those who abandon us in pursuit of gotcha gold.

  1. Here is an Inuit poem, author unknown, from the the nineteenth century, which I love. (If you saw the film “Never Cry Wolf”, you may remember it.)

    I think over again my small adventures, My fears, Those small ones that seemed so big, For all the vital things I had to get and to reach; And yet there is only one great thing, The only thing, To live to see the great day that dawns And the light that fills the world.



  2. “To live to see the great day that dawns” is iambic pentameter — as gorgeous as anything Shakespeare wrote!
