Will This Do?

Parshah Toldo
                    So when Esau saw that the Canaanite women
                    did not please his father Isaac...
                            Genesis 28: 8

So what did he do?
He got himself a wife from Ishmael's
side of the family. The daughter
of Ishmael, Isaac's firstborn.
Who has not tried to figure out
 how to sit at the table?
Who has not chafed when standing
outside, walking a perimeter
where even the words sound muted?
Who has not questioned the past?
