So you want to make your living in the
Easier to burn without oil for eight days!
The point of Hanukkah is that God has his ways.
And what kind of miracle are you looking for,
No miracle is going to give you back your life:
Days of dreams, days and nights of despair, years and years
and years of hope...
Living at the heart of creation;
Of all the dry movement, flakes of dead talk,
Retakes, rituals, favors for the files,
Rendering one perfect, sparkling scream ...
A miracle takes a lot of rehearsal.
In between, one works and wonders, wonders and counts the
Nodding from exhaustion, one says yes, yes, yes,
Even this, yes, even this ...
