Gaza 1/1/09

Gaza 1/1/09
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

Watching brown eyes film its flight

How I wonder what you are

Watching wind coax it to earth

Way above the earth so high,

Pretty iron magic wand,

Like a spaceship in the sky

Red as hate and stencil-stamped

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

Closer, closer,

How I wonder what you are.

Landing. Last wish.

Lullaby.

While shepherds watch their flocks by night,

Oh god. Yahweh. My Mother, son…

All gathered on the ground

Twinkle twinkle little star,

Our blood feels just what you are.
