On Rav Kook Following Oct 7th

It is becoming clearer and clearer

That Oct 7th changed me

So greatly

That I cannot even name

What changes there have been.

The Mystical, sad to say,

Has left me not knowing 

What to do

In the deepest recesses

Of the tragically mundane.

How to reconcile

Rav Kook’s radical tolerance

In the shadow of acts

That hardly seem human?

It’s easy to see that

HaShem is asking for a lot.
