Racket

    for Dorit

Life racket, sickness racket

happy racket sad racket

spring racket

winter racket

what a racket in me

a racket of the particular and the vague

something wasteful and agreeable

the racket of travel and the racket of love

the racket of weakness or the racket of strength

the racket of brightness and the racket of darkness

meetings racket

the racket of longing for distances and fears

and the racket of kids blurs them all;

the racket of kisses covers me

the racket of festivities the racket of movement

and listening to the racket of speech

–Maya Bejerano (translated from Hebrew by Tsipi Keller)
