Old Friend

They, who pulled the stars from the heavens

Took the light from your eyes

As though it were too bright

Too childish

Everything it should not be.

 

When I see you standing in alpine photographs

Tall and broken in your bekishe

I think of my grandfather

And of how nothing had to be this way, actually.

 

It could have been bright, like the stars.

 

Where Am I?
