I think of Moses, how he needed to take a break from all the worded wounds of the former slaves. I think how he took his stuttering self up to Mount Sinai, for forty days and forty nights, in order to make known the words he could speak. He brought down two stone tablets containing ten Tweets: The Ten Commandments. Is that it? was what the critics said. They wanted something complicated and erudite. Later, of course, they, themselves, turned those ten commandments into 613, even though there is really only one.
