Recipe for a Good Poem / by Elisha Porat


Take the painful remembrance of your childhood,

Overlay it with the greening patina

Of the memory of the years and the words.

And then, with your sharpened pencil, peel it,

Carve it up violently, so that it breaks as

With a scalpel, until it reaches the living flesh.


Translated from the Hebrew By Asher Harris.
