day 191

O God, do not keep silence;
   do not hold your peace of
         be still, O God!  Psalm 83:1

at the corner
      of Discord
      and Distrust, where
   we rant and rail,
trying to kick the
soapboxes out
      from under those
      we don't want to speak,
   you pull up
   in your food truck,
setting up tables
and offering tea
      and scones, encouraging
us to close our mouths
and open our hearts.
