Interbeing Song

by Mark Chmiel

“Bella Levenshteyn
I look forward to you going to the Middle East:
Because
Wherever I look, there you are
No matter where you are, there you are
If I look at the leaves swirling, there you are
If I look at the curious eighteen-year-old student, there you are
If I look at the crinkled, inked up manuscript, there you are
If I look at the sun partially hidden by the clouds, there you are
If I look at my left hand, there you are
Go in peace to the Middle East
(How else could you go?)
I’ll be here
With you”
