No D (published in Exclamat!on: an Interdisciplinary Journal by the University of Exeter)

(Link to magazine:

I love to write.
I am a writer.
I am a writer without 
a language.

I dream in English, count
in Hebrew; when I feel
lonely I listen 
to my breath.

My writing: dreams unlived,
letters unsent; brush strokes
broad and thin, in colours
bright and dull.

No D

My home is here.
My home is nowhere.
I can hold it firmly in my hand, yet 
it is nothing but air.

No, not air: no one can 
breathe my home.
