Two Poems by Sofia Kioroglou

Back to Wadi en-Nar

Dotting the wilderness of the Judean Desert
hanging dramatically down the cliff edge of a deep ravine
Mar Sabba stands imperiously, overlooking the Kidron Valley
Despite the restriction on women entering the main compound,
I feel an impalpable presence here at the Women’s Tower

Hopefully, I know this unique sentiment won’t be taken by Crusaders,
No gesture of good will justify the unjustifiable looting
Mar Sabba will not remain in Italy, the gross injustices he’ll rectify
Back to Wadi en-Nar, his relics the glory of God will signify
