Do we really need time
if it passes
changes our birth
onto the longing
we have been marching in groups
or alone
in one direction

We grapple with our
and compelled by sinners
people thrive on someone else’s

G-d extends our time
searching among tears
for proper alignment

(p.14: Isaac Jacobovsky, Sin. Alongside-poems, Warsaw 2013, pp.262)
