Perhaps this is a new project for me – a series of poems based on individual verses of scripture. Just a thought. Maybe, it will develop into something more. We’ll see.
And it came to pass afterward,
that he went throughout every city and village […]
He shields his eyes
against a wind flecked
with sand, stumbles
toward the shade splayed
beneath a crooked tree,
sancutary from an afternoon’s heat,
where he sits, removes a stone,
a small biting tooth, jagged
and hungry, from his sandal.
