spiritual topology

Advent 2 – Year A

spiritual topology
reshapes what is possible
redefining and redivining
the nature of space
from fine to global
salvation is divorced
from our exact shape
stem cells and humans
are topologically equivalent
one able to be transformed
into the other

advent change
comes inside out
using fire and water
axes and roots
now and coming
from hidden wildernesses
come cousins and comrades
with the strangest of garb
hiding the outside inside
reshaping the landscape
of breath and soul

come rail at hypocrites
and find yourself
railing at yourself
chief pretender
immune from
your own poison
so freely shed abroad
chopping so freely
all radical roots
but your own
always going before
