We stand with 🇺🇦 STOP WAR

Gilad Meiri | We Came to Violate the Land

God of building violations hear
our application

we the undersigned
people in apartments
in housing blocks
in projects
approach You
to approve our building plans
and permit us our excesses

God of building violations listen
for a second

we broke through the wall
in our sorry rooms
to make a window and a door
we closed a porch
a few feet
for the sake of our own welfare

God of building violations listen
for heaven’s sake

(From PRIVATE 47 – ISREAEL, p. 77; Translation from Hebrew by Lisa Katz; Taken from Tremors in Jelly “Carmel, Jerusalem, 2006”)
