Please could you …

… tell me why did i have the urge to cut down a light post with an axe a few days ago?

I know the answer, do you?

You laugh -
The courts
Take quickly,
Give back slowly.

It’s late, you say,
We both stand up,
An Arab doctor, a Jewish singer,
Hug each other and go.

From the direction of the mountain
All is normal,
The Good October
Is about to begin.

(Amir Lev)

אתה צוחק -
בתי המשפט
לוקחים מהר,
מחזירים לאט.

מאוחר אתה אומר,
שנינו קמים,
רופא ערבי, זמר יהודי,
מתחבקים והולכים.

מכיוון ההר
הכל רגיל,
אוקטובר הטוב
עומד להתחיל.

(עמיר לב)
