  1. haiku offerings
    we give these poetic words
    as verbal blessings

    Aaron’s sons were killed
    Moses says that is God’s deal
    Aaron is silent

  2. embrace shechinah
    with its spirit all around
    the divine presence

    Nadav, Avihu
    his sons sin with fire and die
    Aaron is silent

    the laws of kashrut
    it is all easier when
    vegetarian
