Rag and bone

Alte-zachen

They used to shout.

It was

father

and son

Who had

come

across from Qalquilia

To

facilitate

early-days

recycling.

 

Ambushing

Yiddish

And Hebrew,

Transmogrified

Into Arabic.

 

Their

donkey

was close to its end;

staggering in the heat.

 

Melting

Tarmac

And

Heat haze

Wavering.

 

No one was quite sure how to act.
