How To Eat Matzoh in Mixed Company
~April 28, 2019
from plastic wrap like an Easter
present, or cover it in chocolate, cracked
like an egg. Starve for it,
drink to bear it with pickled
fish. In soup, crushed to pulp,
or spread thin with pale
cheese, lox bandage
on top, read it: braile
message about the cost of becoming free.
Hold it as tasteless example,
lesson, shield & don’t stop
shattering a synagogue’s windows with your teeth.
standing up or lying down or leaning to the left
on this wet and yeasty night so everyone
can hear it, so everyone knows you hate
to eat it, but you eat it year after year, singing.
