Yona Wallach (Hebrew: יונה וולך, 1944-1985) was an Israeli poet. She was proud of her bisexuality and stunned her readers with her daring expressions of sexuality and spirituality combined. Wallach also featured Jungian psychology in her work. Wallach also wrote lyrics for, and performed with, Israeli rock bands. She died of breast cancer in 1985. Her book Island Songs was published in 1969. Below is a typical poem.
With a monkey wrench Lotta combs her hair
Her locks are springs.
She takes pills against different sensations
Wears a dress of web
And goes out what
Lotta perceives instead of
The truth is that you've got a wonderful body,
So why would you need a pipe of war
But Lotta took pills
And now she understands only words.
