Wending Inside

Every day he posts telling the world

Why crucified homeboy is on his list

As if we all needed reminding —

Jesus is busy coming back

We, the living and the law the best we can.

Being ones on fire as Catherine the Saint 

Says we can be if only 

There weren’t grandmother drug kingpins

Sweat shops ruled by the bat

Roads of warm sunlight ways.

We cannot sleep, or maybe we don’t 

Want to close our eyes for the briefest moment

For this passing feed, or miss a second coming —

Which is worse at night we’re told to seek shelter —

And fifty other things because we can’t see

Forgetting as long as we keep our eyes open

On what’s to come, we miss the rose to the light

Wending inside.
