Each Stone

by Yehuda Karni

Each stone in you gashes,
And goads;
And the cold that breaks out
Of your buildings,
Your heights scratched bare,
Rubble, or shafted tombs
Of shut-in caves,
Strikes me as searing flame.
I lie flat on rock, weakened in spirit,
And rise with lips cracked, my forehead marked,
As though I had clutched death's rock
And embraced hell
Among eternity's hills.
Each stone stabs like the Gehenna
In you, Jerusalem,
Yet why, when I rise from that inferno's hold
Do the heavens stand opened to me?
