Poems

I Am Not the Man

Notes

* A biblical reference: Psalm 114, 3: ‘The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs.' The literal translation from Hebrew would be: ‘The mountains danced like rams...'. This psalm is part of the Passover story (Hagada). The context is exodus and the miraculous breaking up of the red sea to let the Jewish people through. I read this image as a reference to liberation.

Truly a work of poetic art. Nothing I see as being without great grammar and this poem inspires me.
