day 133

When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said tot hem, "Let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her."  And once again he bent down and wrote on the ground.  John 8:7-8

those petulant
      pebbles we
   lodge in others' souls;
those rocks we
would place so
      those we detest
   would trip over
   their narcissism;
those stones we
      would hurl
   to crush the
                 hopes
         of outsiders?

crumble them
into the canvas
      on which you
   finger paint
         grace
