Two men in an Israeli settlement,

one a blow-gun spear, one an over-ripe melon with corrugate skin,

pose unsmiling in front of a spiked metal fence

The blow-gun spear writes about drug-resistant bacteria

The melon’s daughter suffers from cancer

In a hospital bed, she wears an executive’s face

It’s no one’s fault
