Well Encountered

Year A - Third Sunday in Lent or Conviction [3]

Well Encountered

en route elsewhere
tired
thirsty
hungry
foreign
we sit

still privileged
we wait
for service
“Be an angel,
bring me
a drink.”

still expectant
we are
surprised
by 
a surprised
response

still special
with knowledge
expected of
the unexpected
we add
a sweetener

now intrigued
our potential angel
is drawn nearer
through their questions
almost ready
for reframing

alright
here we go
I ask for water
you give it to me
I give you Water
you get the better deal

alright
Angel is in
“Any out from
daily drudgery
will suit me
just fine.”

of course
there is  just
one more thing
bring the one
who should have
undrudged you

of course
that would be
helpmeet spouse
fair culture
cute bootstraps
right rituals

“I see
you want me to see
there is nothing
in my past or
present context
to lighten my load.”

I see
you see 
what I see
welcome
to a prophet’s
life

and so
it came to pass
Angel Photina left
without sharing water
and yet with
Water renewed
