Do you think he is trying to echo Amir Gilboa’s “When I say Blood?”
I’m curious how many of these poets are close to Palestinian poets writing along similar lines?
The you or a wonderful session, Rachel. I must leave, but will be back.
In New York, WEVD was the radio station for immigrants. Had regularly scheduled programming in lots of languages from the old country (whatever your old country was). I don’t remember thinking of it as a “station of shame,” but that’s one reason I was never a poet.
These stations were mocked by the veteran Israelis who were still developing language (Hebrew is a very poor language compared to European languages in terms of vocabulary) and culture. There was an effort to create the NEW Israeli...whatever the hell that was/is. "Mizrachi pop music" was not played on the stations but only sold on tapes in the bus station.

when was a child my entire family spoke Yiddish. Whenever I responded in Yiddish I was reprimanded. Only english, only English - they would tell me in Yiddish!
Ofra Haza literally died of embarrassment. She had AIDs (got it from her husband who also died of the disease) and didn't want anyone to know....so she hid it and got no treatment.
we can’t see the song and english
