One Week Passes: A Second Reflection on Pittsburgh

one week passes

it's the first of many

where we will be tasked to work


vigils/services/prayer/protest/words/actions/torah

30 jews so far arrested across the country

hundreds of thousands raised by our allies


our prophets are alive

we are staying open, staying strong, staying loud

the eytz is truly hayim


this shabbat

let us continue to commit to a cycle much older than this hatred

let us rest


pushing back this wave is long work

but we are a people

who tend to *much longer* roots


we will overwhelm their ugliness with that beauty

we will delight in solidarity despite them

we will live *so hard* that they will be pushed back breathless by our soft divinity


together,

we will outlive them


tonight,

we rest


and, tomorrow,

we outlive them
