day 29

I call upon you, for you will
         answer me, O God;
   incline your ear to me,
         hear my words.  Psalm 17:6

when others act
      as if they cannot
   understand my shouts,
         you hear my
         sore-throated whispers;
when my friends(!)
      turn their hearts
      away from me, you
   put your ear
   right next
         to my lips
      to cradle every
ache.
