day 84

These are the waters of Mer'i-bah, where the people of Israel quarreled with the LORD, and by which he showed his holiness.  Numbers 20:13

we would rather
      jump feet first
   into quibble's
   deep waters, sinking
                        down
      to grab
      contention's bones
      lying on the
            bottom,
than take the
         glass
   of peace
you hold out to
                     us.
