Holy Saturday

“Why must I walk about
   because of the oppression of
         the enemy?” Psalm 43:2b

while the guys are off
doing God-only-knows what,
the women have
swaddled hope in
their tears and placed it
in the manger shaped
from their broken hearts, as
they sit by the window
staring down the road
watching for the
to come home
from that distant country
