A Vessel Named You

Vertical turnstile bruised my heel

Not so much that i missed the intended departure

in a subway car named 3756

or something like that

for whatever it’s worth

 

On board

a man opened his briefcase

revealing unlikely sheets

of music he read silently

“It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday”

Yesteryear i might’ve agreed more

 

That night, Daystar echoed HR’s instructions

especially different:

Report in the storm at your own risk.

A woman discussed the ministry

of moving forward after the loss of a husband’s love

for The Way of Truth, his life and their flock

 

Just then, my foot started to twitch

in whispers of witnessed agonies i had to part with

Empty apologies, social climbing dis-ease

pulling up and coming around only when strapped to boot

as had once been my truth

Needing to switch

Weather Channel confirmed

the cold called for Timbs


Church_of_the_Ascension_(Johnstown,_Ohio)_-_stained_glass,_The_Holy_Spirit_as_fire

Preparing my heart and the next day’s clothing

with warming fire in mind

i peeked through Stella’s eyes before sleep

awakening to a Bodily war cry

If you must prove something, prove all

Be glad this day I made it so you needn’t chase bread

Behold the manner

of cleansing the land needs and rest

 

The region would be blanched;

i would learn of bumps in the road

and unhealthy desire, power lines, trees felled

Yet my God of baptismal blessings or destruction

by water, Word, fire & grand Design

asks The Beloved for trust from a clean inner cup

to pour Truth-in-Love freely where he says sow

 

That alone should teach us to immerse ourselves humbly.
