SUICIDE CAMP



   Children of Eden
   they call them
   the twelve-year-old
   Shahid-in-training

   believing they haveno other way
   than exploding themselves
   on Tel Aviv streets.

   Outside my window atthe university
   I hear the girls ofthe summer camp
   singing peace songsof the sixties.
