I fill my head with the scents of Jerusalem,
In ever-changing variety.
The shining sepulcher, a wall of stone tears,
a dome, a mosque, a rock.
I fill my head with the scents of Jerusalem,
A place betwixt the green and brown,
Searching still, forever split
Schismatic, a rifting, widening, its own
Megiddo.
 
Jerusalem, my city of contradiction,
My temple of paradox,
Lost within itself.
