The absence of sense depends on cultural ball bearings where and how they fall/
to determine relative logic of putting one foot forward in longitudinal march to border lands/
where a country’s laws meet powerful competing demands of moral and international norms/
where six boats on the high sea must be given free passage and are not subject to fits of national/
madness leading to death even death has no logic except to draw attention to continued crime/
of blocking access to cumin and cement, among other necessities, for population of Gaza City.
