for altar

or cliff

I’m at the mercy

of You

and Your lots


after swinging

the briefly orbiting object

stops to be

eaten or spent

realize that things don’t always revolve

around you

and resolve the universes

between you

and Him

— Yossi Huttler

Yossi Huttler is an assistant district attorney in Brooklyn. He is currently on a leave of absence.
