The Path of Language (Compromismo/7)

For the last several years Henry’s friend David Harbrecht
Had been paying attention to the drama of the Palestinian struggle

Once he visited
He was moved in his viscera

He then made a decision
There was follow-through

Upon awakening in the morning
After making his first cup of coffee

He studied Arabic
Week after week

That went on for years
Qahweh, Arabeeyah

Last I heard of him
He was teaching at Bir Zeit

–from Dear Layla Welcome to Palestine
