Woman, First Person Singular

Bitan Publishers, 1995.


A woman is looking for the meaning of life in the minute details
and commitments of everyday life, searching for the wonder in the routine,
the extraordinary within the ordinary. In the process,
she discovers new spaces opening up between the kitchen,
the balcony and the street:

" a woman in the kitchen
  is watching the birth of day
   dipping into Great Expectations
with a cup of coffee and remains of a cheese cake
running
  to reach
    goals
     that arent
      there
looking for
  a key that doesnt exist
    to open
     a non-existent door
to a room that isnt there

How would you like your coffee?"
