day 50

You prepare a table before
         me
   in the presence of my
         enemies;  Psalm 23:5:a

in the midst of
      those who trouble
               us, may
   we lay out a
         picnic,
   so in the breaking
      of the bread,
hearts might be
         mended,
   old slights brushed
   away with the
      crumbs,
and bridges built
   across the blanket
   spread across grace's
          lawn.
