you are wonderful, like horoscopes

tribute to Yehuda Amichai


calm, like the stillness after rain

with eyes like lonely lilies

your laughter and speech are ancient fashions

from a book of other things.


you are wonderful like horoscopes

that never come true.

I can find the brightest star

with your fingers, strong and broken.


there is so much hiding there,

and at night

you keep that tired heavy kingdom
