Eager to make a catch, any catch he can,

he grips the rod and sets eye on the bobber;

imagining the strike, he wants to reel it in

to see what’s lurking in the water.

  • Lost photograph of Trotsky, from the family album

    by Jehanne Dubrow

    August 20, 2014 | 12:30 pm

    In that snapshot of Leon with Great-Uncle So-and-So, they’re slouching

    somewhere equatorial, two Jews exiled in direct sunlight. To the right:

    a cactus, which reminds them it’s thirsty this work — to stand for the

    workers. To the left: some sand as if to say Keep Walking. My...

  • Poem: A Theory’s Evolution

    by Charles Bernstein

    August 13, 2014 | 12:30 pm

    The Theory of Flawed Design is not a scientifically proven

    Alternative to evolution. It is based on the everyday life

    Experience that natural selection could not have produced

    Such a catastrophic outcome. Optimists and the religiously

    Inclined will naturally prefer...

  • Poem: After

    by Eve Grubin

    August 6, 2014 | 12:59 pm

    After a loss you live

    with your gasp, your gaze,

    with your hungry mouth as you lift the fork.

    Something Sane. Open the door.

    A guest sits down at the kitchen table.

    Washing evening dishes:

    something simple, something sane.

  • Wish you were here you are

    by Rachel Zucker

    time isn’t the same for everyone there is

    science behind this when you fly into space

    you’re not experiencing time at the same rate

    as someone tethered to Earth & someone

    moving quickly experiences time at a slower rate

    even on Earth so as I run through Central Park

  • “While God Weeps”

    By Rabbi Joshua Levine Grater

    July 30, 2014 | 11:47 am

    While God Weeps,

    The children of Abraham continue to slaughter one another,

    As it was before, so it is now, hatred and mistrust fogging our ability to see the humanity in one another.  Palestinians unable to see the humanity in Isaac, Israelis unable to see the humanity in...

  • Poem: Jewish Dream #18

    by M.E. Silverman

    July 23, 2014 | 3:23 pm

    The dream is not so simple — learn what is between

    your mouth & God’s ear, feel holy when the ark opens,

    know the history of suffering, when it will suffice,

    how to chant like the sea breaking against rocky shores,

    know all about absence, that a good dish is the experience

  • Though we hope for change

    by Lori Levy

    July 2, 2014 | 3:50 pm

    It’s the same song playing under the sun.
    Day after day, a triangle tings
    in the back of the band: barely there,
    but beautiful as chimes trembling in a breeze.
    We quiver, as when finger tips stroke our necks.
    The measures flow, pianissimo, lovely —
    until, in a shift of pace,...
