He was the image in God's eye,
the seedling replanted in a new fertile land.
So his father told him, and so
Even at the bottom of the well,
Even from the corner of the cell,
He was the center of all things.
Joseph's egotism was more powerful than all his forefathers'
Not even famine, barking from the hollow eyes
Until the innocence of Benjamin, bowing before him,
We. If only we
And suddenly he was the image in his brother's eye.
And there was no longer any center.
We wear ourselves like a great multicolored coat
