GARLIC POETRY, by Jennifer (Jinks) Hoffmann
Close to the Ground
Creation theology...is interested in the nature

the interplay between the two of them.
──Ellen Bernstein. p. 42
in New Jewish Feminism. Probing the Past.
Forging the Future. Ed. Rabbi Elyse Goldstein
All of it.
in his khaki

Mandy, James and Ethan.
Mandy, with her
her quiet respect

James. Pull the stalks
close to the ground.
