Weather – Meir Wieseltier
The weather I like the most in the world
The air that wet the sand and saturated it with its smell
Now wanders around half asleep, happy, all the night lies ahead.
He strokes her cheek as he passes, but he will not be delayed.
Pleasant dampness clings to the housing blocks
Peeling off plaster. Tel-Aviv falls asleep standing up and emits
Frenzied groans from her slumber.
Say a kind word in this city, she deserves compassion.
