One Summer Day by Eva Eliav

From "One Summer Day"

strangers share my web

of rituals

we speak in covert glances


the same ants sting our feet

we bathe together

in the same hot wind

traffic rumbles by

the radio squawks

two boys are arguing

in Italian

a man and woman

fiddle with their phones

within this snarl

of languages and silence

we pulsing knots

of life

Eve by Eva Eliav

From "Eve"

perhaps what we needed in eden

was a mother

the old man’s love

was so conditional

and the garden

smugly stocked with delicacies

painfully perfect

had little to do really

with what we are

fistful of grasses

in a jar of bone

clumsy kisses

tasting of flesh and blood
