Israel with Tuvia
My brother is married to Israel
I watched him fall for Earis and the country
I watched and dipped my toe in the sea,
I gave myself a year to live at the edge of the Negev
and then just above the Kinneret,
And in July
I went home
to stay, I thought.
But 15 years later
And brought me back
To walk with him
at the edge of the sea.
I was ready,
Israel with a weathered partner
and find a place for
