wash your hands

Pentecost +13 – Year B

wash your hands

you can't be my beloved
your laving sensibilities
can't be loved

and that is just the tip
of the proverbial iceberg
that would sink me

my beloved should affirm
me in all my current me-ness
and keep me forever

to love you as you are
would be too generous a gift
for me to consider

what then would not be beloved
what then could I be angry about
what then should I do with me

here, let me show you how to wash
your hands, your mouth, your mind
your heart, your soul, you're mine
