will there be enough

i've brought one . . .
i found it in the street
after some neighbors
took off a door
to carry a paralyzed
down the street
to some faith

a group of Galileans
came to the big city
for Passover
i had to put some
tables together last night
for their dinner party.
here's a
left-over nail;

years ago
i bought a cradle
at a yard sale in Nazareth.
just the other day
it finally fell apart;
i was going
to throw the pieces
into the garbage
but you can
have one of the nails
. . . if you need it.

on Good Friday

we never run
out of
