why do we live and why do we die?
because those are the two things god cannot do
because limits and bounds, and bodies and death
are exactly what an endless, ever-lasting oneness cannot know
and they are exactly what god,
- in her endless, ever-lasting curiosity -
desires to learn
so why do we live and why do we die?
we live when god breathes her soul into our body
- the miracle of divinity-hemmed-flesh -
and when do we die?
the moments she decides (בהו״צ)
to pluck our soul like a petal from the stem
and return it to her garden
so we can regale the adventure
and teach all that we've learned here to them
