and then

Easter 4 - Year C

no matter what name
we go by
Tabitha, Dorcas, Gazelle
we go bye

one eye on obituary
worthy material
tunics, chitons, albs
are worthy materials

then it is written
rest sweet rest
death, quietus, sleep
sweet sweet rest

and a call to arms
get up up
rise and shine, pile out, rouse
up get up

a hand please
a hand given
sewing, darning, reweaving
a hand given

restored and revived
goodness and mercy
follow, lead, share
and mercy goodness

then it is not written
where to
here, there, nowhere
to where
