The language of my parents

My mother has a crack
In the heart of the language
Like a scarf
Covering her roots.


My father has a language
Like a baby that is forgotten
In a Ben Gurionic tent,
Like a periphery
Forgotten by God.


From the ruins of the language of my parents
I shall build a house for my children:


No middle
Without beginning.
