Eleventh Commandment

Justice Justice

Thou shalt not swallow the unconscious – 11th Commandment

Tzedek tzedek tirdof
righteousness righteousness
twice
you shall pursue it [Deut. 16:20]
what follows:
the bride of God
you shall not plant an asherah [Deut.16:21]
some sort of Canaanite goddess
a cult tree
planted near the altar of G*d.

It took a long time to separate
G*d and his bride
we reunite the bride of G*d with her consort
every Friday night
we are talking justice here
then myth.

Tonight
the holy Shabbes
the King and his consort
the goddess and her beloved
the Queen and her lover
re-united
and it feels good good
the symmetry of return
repairing something broken
separated long ago –

tonight
they are marrying.
