This week's portion: rest for the land.


My poem "Mystery" has just been published in the current edition of Qarrtsiluni, as part of the theme "an opening in the body." (I let my anonymous co-editor decide whether or not to run it; it didn't seem fair to slot in my own work just because I'm co-editing this time around!) Read it here.

The poem also appears in chaplainbook. It was written toward the end of my hospital chaplaincy internship, inspired in part by a conversation with Rabbi Judith Abrams about doctors being the high priests of our day and in part by encountering a surgeon very late one on-call night.

"An opening in the body" will be our theme through the rest of May, so if you have submissions that relate to that theme (however you understand it), please send them our way.
