“Kaddish” by Jayne Benjulian

A new poem by alumna Jayne Benjulian (poetry, ’13) appears online in The Ilanot Review:

Kaddish

In the attic deep enough for twenty
childhoods, an autograph book,
Oak School No. 3, resplendent in gold,
zipper teeth around the pastel sheets,

her signature in shaky cursive.
Bundled in blankets, smaller than
a ten-year-old, fingers cold,
she must have found it awkward
to hold a pen.
