Curriculum Vitae




Scribe out of work

At a loss for words

Not his to begin with,

The man life passed by

Stands at the window

Biding his time




Time and again

And now once more

I climb these stairs

Unlock this dooró

No name where I live

Alone in my lair

With one bone to pick

And no time to spare


Samuel Menashe
