(Raanana, July 17, 2015)

To be and not to be,
That is the commandment:
To live and dream,
To dream one’s life,
The innocence of original sin
And the sin of innocence,
To love logic for its loveliness,
Its loneliness,
And its lovelessness,
To live forever and to live a day,
To run to and to run away,
To doubt and believe,
To be loyal and betray,
To live while dying,
To accept the question as an answer,
To love but hate that you love
But still to love,
To affirm your contradictions
And yes but perhaps no,
To be and not to be.
