THE WALK

Bethphage and Bethany. 
Mount of Olives.

Legs bent so as not to drag -
He rides on a small donkey.
Leaves and cloaks rain down.

The downcast, and the outcast;
The cheerless ones - cheering.
The powerful, and the feared;
The peerless ones - peering.

"Can't you control your followers?"
"Yes, but if I did, this pavement,
On which we stand would shout!"

Mount of Olives. 
Jerusalem.


           ~ Tiwago (from Luke 19)
