A New Year

12:00 midnight sharp,
and one year on the cusp
of another; the perns and gyres
(never really understood)
in perfect balance
for one second,
or something like that.

war is here;
war is there;
war is everywhere
it seems:

insipid and facile
as a nursery
rhyme.

like janus,
we can look forward and back
at once and see
atrocity. nobody learns
from history.

12:01: the new year
has begun.

G-d give us strength;
G-d give us health;
G- d give us the one
who will bring
peace to everyone.

G-d give us Zach,
the scion
of Akivah
and Yisrael.

amen
