STONED BY WORRY.



despair, and
anxiety, and
FEARS

stone, upon
stone, upon
STONES

now i lay me down to dark sleep -
i lay the stones one-by-one-by-one
here upon my own heaving chest

stone, upon
stone, upon
STONES

despair, and
anxiety, and
FEARS

RUSSIAN ROULETTE




spin the wheel of hate /
every chamber filled with fear ||
barrel to my head

LECTIONARY POEM





Old Moses came down from a high mountain top;
Like a sun, the Glory-of-God shone from his face.
A hidden Darkness in the people feared the Light! 
So, Moses wore a veil when he was out in public -
But when face to face with God, there was no veil.

And so then, our minds became hard and closed;
We hid from Jehovah behind our thin veil of Laws.
When Jesus died for us, the veil was ripped aside,
So that all could gaze on each other's naked faces -
To discover there, the reflected Grace-of-the-Lord.

We saw each other, transfigured there before us,
And we felt the deep old need for the old old veil -
Driven by our fearful demons, we built an edifice.
We soon found we couldn't cast out the demons,
Because we had hidden the Light behind a veil.
