The Night After the Surgeries
Dahlia Falah
Translated by Rachel Tzvia Back

This is the night after the surgeries:
everyone is sedated with morphine,
and the screws extracted from them
have been transferred to the Secret Service.
As always, everything is closed up there
in the hospital—just as the operating theatres
are closed, and the nails and screws that were extracted
are sealed in a special evidence bag,
in case the Secret Service expresses an interest in them,
in case they want to know from which
village hardware store
they were taken
to fulfill their purpose. [End Page 68]

Dahlia Falah is a pen name, and the facts of her life are closely guarded by her publisher. Her first poems appeared in the late 1970s, her first book was published in 1997, and her second and most recent book (entitled 2003) was published by Am Oved Press in 2003.
