day 103

A few days later the younger son gathered all he had and traveled to a distant country, and there he squandered his property in dissolute living.  Luke 15:13

   we've gone to
   that far country
         called foolishness:
spending grace
      on greedy goods;
confusing lust
   for love;
mortgaging our hopes
      for a place
      where every hunger
   is filled, wondering
all the while
if you have even
         noticed
we are gone.
