"As we were marching"

by Aharon Shabtai

Two days ago in Rafi'ah,
nine Arabs were killed,
yesterday six
were killed in Hebron,
and today -- just two.
Last year
as we were marching
from Shenkin Street,
a man on a motorcycle
shouted toward us:
"Death to the Arabs!"

You can read interviews with three Israeli poets on The News Hour's website.
