Black and White

by Drora Matlofsky

A crow in the snow,
A dove on a pile of coal...
Why do we always fear for white's purity?
White hair can ruin a black jumper just as well.

Drora Matlofsky has been living in Jerusalem since 1984. Her poetry in English has appeared in various poetry and Jewish magazines and her poetry in French can be found on the Poésie Française site.
