Diaries from a City under Fire
by Vacy Vlazna

“We prepare the suhoor. We all sit around five dishes: white cheese, hummus, orange jam, yellow cheese, and olives. Darkness eats with us. Fear and anxiety eat with us. The unknown eats with us. The F16 eats with us. The drone and its operator somewhere out in Israel, eat with us.”
