day 223

When I thought, "My foot is
         slipping,"
   your steadfast love,
         O LORD, held me up.  Psalm 94:18

(while the world
      waits around the
      corner, ready to
   laugh its head off at me),
you rush up
and catch me, as
      i step on
      the peel tossed
   on the sidewalk
   by foolishness, and
begin to topple
