Holy Wednesday

“Do not cast me away from
         your presence,
   and do not take your holy
         spirit from me.”  Psalm 51:11

even as we walk
   away, our spirits intact
   from the threat of your
even as we toss you
aside like single-use plastic
      by the side of the road,
you will seek to draw us
closer to you, to fill us
with hope
