You, with a capital Why?

by Drora Matlofsky

You, with a capital Why?
Why you, with a capital double-You?
Why? Why?
Why You?
Why me?
Why me, with a small 'm'?
Me, I'm small, so there is no Why?
No capital Why?
I'm just here to ask Why?
I am just here for You,
Because of You
With a capital Why?

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.
