Parsha Bamidar

          Then the Lord spoke to Moses in the
           wilderness of Sinai, saying: ...You shall
           enroll every male from a month old and upward.
                           Numbers 3:15

I'm there, Lord
didn't you see me
I was cooking up a stew,
taking care of a child
with a runny nose, and
studying the dark sky,
counting the stars. I run
out of numbers. Lord, maybe
you missed me, maybe I'm
bending down, maybe I'm
washing clothes, maybe Lord
we need to talk cause I need
to be counted. I am one
of your congregation.
