Wish

Tonight I blew out the candles,
but I didn’t make a wish. No time

to think of one. What on earth am I
supposed to wish for anyway? Health

or fame or a long life doing
exactly what I want? If I made

a running list of all my wishes,
it would be too long, I’m afraid.

My wish, I guess, is to end all wishes.
I wish to make everything

as it should be. I wish the ultimate wish–
I wish for shalom.
