Zedek\Jupiter is Justice\ Edna AphekTranslated from Hebrew by Dana Peleg and Edited by Edna Aphek Over a cliff a seagull soaredBirds, some spotted,Some stripedGathered worms.Zedek, the God of Justice, rose from the sea.Lifted waves chased surfersBody curves crashed into the rocks.Foamy waves shot onto the beachReturning to the ocean’s brim.The seagull doesn’t careThe birds don’t mind,The worms may,They certainly may.From across some were taking pictures on their phonesTaking and singing:We will drive Justice awayWith torches that don’t bring lightAnd pitchforks that are not for hay.And the land was all chaos and darkness Darkness upon darknessAnd it bellowedFrom within.Zedek-justice rose from the sea.Like mist it rose Now Justice \Jupiter is just a planet.
