Great Regulars: Note: These three poems are part of

the "The Sacrifice of Abraham," a series of re-tellings of the biblical story of Isaac and Abraham. In each section, a group of rabbis gathers to re-tell and offer commentary on the story, and with each re-telling transforms it into a broader and broader vision encompassing Greek gods, revolutionaries, insurgents, love affairs, and photographic details from current events. The artwork featured here is part of the cycle "Suspension of ThisBelief" from Arielle Tonkin's recent installation "Archaeology of a Collapsed Page," mixed media, 2012, and was selected by the writer and photographed by Laurie Trok.
