A Poem – “Piece By Piece”


At the construction site of the

new Champlain Bridge,

pre-fabricated sections

are laid down, put together

to connect between

people, communities, cities.


At the Breitbart site,

pre-fabricated news items

are laid down, put together

to break any bridge between

nationalities, ethnicities, religions, opinions.


(Editor’s note: poet Shai Ben-Shalom, an Israeli-born biologist, examines current events in the Blacklock’s tradition each and every Sunday)
