Kneeling Bent

My head hangs

I watch for your face but I cannot see it

I need to see your eyes

I feel where the stone pressed my hand

You are kneeling bent

I am shaming

Throw it, you say

I cannot

She weeps

I dropped it already

We pray

I am her

We are them

I should bend too

We should bend

It’s us and them

It’s you and her

It’s all of us

We could be kneeling and writing and weeping and praying together.

Thanks be to Christ Jesus for coming the take down the Keep Out Signs.
