Lent 32: Saturday of Fourth Week

Some will say: Had we been

alive then, we would not have killed

the prophets or despised their words.

Yet the Truth stands to rebuke.

 

In every heart, the secret depths

defy what shines with grace before us,

takes, destroys, the tender things

and carves a throne from bones.

 

Jerusalem, Jerusalem:

the fire comes; the mother longs

to cover you up with her wings.

Yet in your heart you run.
