Psalm 130


Pentecost +11 - Year B


with no where to turn
a cry arises
neither bidden nor
involuntary
wherefore art thou

my need demands
a hearing
there will be no rest
until there is a faceoff
and someone blinks

I know I’m an underdog
in this context
but wobbly knees
are strengthened
for the stakes are high

my claim is not innocence
for there is none
but an honored hearing
a remembrance
presumed forgiveness

a standoff continues
waiting upon waiting
hope within hope
assumpton beneath assumption
as dark turns to morning

no more keeping of fouls
piled unbearably
on one party
we are in this together
freely bound
