Something partial
broken –


In Abraham’s generation
what only the future could repair.

Children of Abraham
all the Isaacs and Ishmaels of the future:

Go forth and make a path for your children;

Everything that happened to them
will happen to you. [Bereshit Rabbah 40:6]

From atop Ezekiel’s chariot
Avraham saw and understood everything.

Amen, he whispered.
