Invisible Borders

For Aya, my friend from Israel.

How can I forget
the words we have exchanged?

How can I forget
in you there is a baking light
your browned humanism needling through,
my restlessness long unsteady
walks out my ears.

And how can I forget
the wisdom untraceable unbelonged
that pours out through you
air across borders turns moist
as you open the way
now and again.
