Penang

Penang is a pretty place

Rich with sacred things

And not so sacred things

Penang is also a palimpsest

Penang tries to forget its dusty, chequered past

Through suppression, neglect, and erasure

But history comes back to haunt the living

In ways it can never imagine

    Holy! I go to Penang every year, and I have never seen the Jewish cemetery! I didn’t know we had Jews in malaysia! But yes, Penang is beautiful. We must meet up before you leave.
