day 157

But I am poor and needy;
   hasten to me, O God!  Psalm 70:5a

when we would
hemandhaw
      with our reasons,
   using our busyness,
             our bum knees,
             our bare cupboards
   to put off caring,
double dare us
      to beat you
   in a sprint
to help the
            vulnerable.
