  2. "an other gaza"

    in chaos one man collects

    his daughter into a plastic bag

       oh my god the bag is leaking

    one kisses a cave was baby boy face just this

    morning braids unplaiting phosphorous

    wordless exhaust smoke shock


    what is it that remains of us now

    then what is recyclable in us


    men’s beards carry their lineage

    refracted memory drones

    drummed ears echo frequency

    children call for siblings reborn

    skulls fracture eyes the color purple

    here the steeliest doctors weep


    the sea waves shelled boys

    sirens post explosions


    all is shrapnel and hunger

    none is safe all are waiting

    between wall and wait and sea

    and wall there is no day

    what are we

    flares rain metal escalation


    descent upon heads ladders of spine collapse

    night eats sleep the people hold fasts


    children of lightening no rain

    sewage into water skin flamed to ash

    the women’s faces track lifelines

    grief upon grief astronomical

    dust was people last night

    tunnel is the people now


    raising horizon in coffins

    there is no recovery


    she says they light the night with bombs

    she says that’s not the sun at all

    she says this is a crime against my heart

    she says nothing

       touch me

    she says listen


    we are shelter and target

    we are stars exploded


    the people run into themselves for refuge

    they catch up to their ghosts

    between devastate and displace

    what is destroyed again is everything

    what is created is a hole

    an other

  3. "I’ve found my productive-writing-to-screwing-around ratio to be one to seven. So, for every eight-hour day of writing, there is only one good productive hour of work being done. The other seven hours are preparing for writing: pacing around the house, collapsing cardboard boxes for recycling, reading the DVD extras pamphlet from the BBC Pride and Prejudice, getting snacks lined up for writing, and YouTubing toddlers who learned the ‘Single Ladies’ dance. I know. Isn’t that horrible? So, basically, writing this piece took me the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Enjoy it accordingly."

    So far .. deaths in Gaza are mostly civilians, many are children, the current death-toll has soared to over 1,000 and is still climbing,  thousands more have been injured, over 160,000 forced to flee their homes, hospitals and ambulances have been attacked, massive structural damage has been inflicted. In Israel three civilians are reported dead as a result of the conflict and forty Israeli soldiers engaged in attacks on Gaza have been killed, one of them shot accidentally by fellow Israeli troops. There is no permanent end yet in sight.
