Every weekend I participate in David Abrams’s “#SundaySentence” project, sharing the best sentence I’ve read during the past week, “out of context and without commentary.”

The others applaud politely
but we Jews
are out of control we Jews
who remember death
as if it could come at any time
in the silence
of a cool
Presbyterian evening.

Against a plain background, the hashtag #SundaySentence appears.
