    NUCLEAR DOZING IN THE CURVE OF YOUR PALM

    By Ada Aharoni

    Cuddled in the heart of your hand,
    soft hand, warm hand,
    I do not feel the meaningless drops
    of life drizzling,
    do not hear its jackal-thunder
    nor see its lynx-lightning
    in the dark.

    And if the world should burst tonight
    in a giant mushroom flame,
    I would not notice –
    Snuggled in the nook
    of your gentle palm
    where I belong,
    it seems I may exist
    forever.

    We are all alike –
    gently dozing in the nook
    and the noose
    of borrowed nuclear time.
