all fall down

Pentecost +25 - Year B

look out
a stone wall
meticulously made
all foundations squared
each arch keystoned perfectly
is on its way down

“good walls” don’t make “good neighbors”
what is thought to be walled out
isn’t what is walled out
that desired to be walled in
can’t be kept in
walls are fantasies

we justify boundaries
when we fear everything’s not alright
show our fear of G*D
show our fear of Neighb*r

and sure enough
tear down a wall 
and fighting ensues
we will prove our premise
foundations will shake
when stones fall

and yet
this is but a beginning
of a new way
enclosed garden
wide wide-earth
again friends
