Joseph Prepares for Descent

and jacob said go see
to the peace of
your brothers take off your
coat peel off your
outer skin fling yourself down
the rabbit hole down
straight down into the
narrowest of narrow places
where your prison awaits and
you won’t be free until
they carry out your barest
bones will you do this for us
and joseph said
hineini
 

(Genesis 37:13-14)
