a dove descends


Epiphany 1 - Year C

filled with expectation
we look for external forces
to bring Jerusalem

another is coming
with fancy brand-name shoes
to slam dunk our salvation

some other we is bound
to claim our stuckness
and claim our allegiance

surprised am I
when instead of wholeness
I’m dashed

filled with expectation
I look for internal authority
to change entrenched systems

bootstraps are meant for pulling
just one more tug will do
well perhaps one more

I'm Good Enough, I'm Smart Enough, and 
Doggone It, People Like Me!
look out world, change is here

what could possibly go wrong
I’ve repented and forgiven
go me

filled with expectation
waiting proceeding
waters break
