Jeff Epton

 

continued

Baal for his rain and sweet water

and might love you for your youth and sweet breath.

And Epton concludes his poem, making a hero out of the woman portrayed as a traitor for three millennia, by having her say, "What you decree, may come, but Jezebel does not flee."

And, of course, he doesn't shy away from politics. The very next poem is entitled "Always Jewish, Lately Palestinian."

Jeff Epton will read from his poems at a wonderful old place but a new reading venue, the West Side Book Shop, on January 20.    (end of article)
