“The LORD is near to all who call
         on him;” Psalm 145:18a

while many claim
you have moved as far
away as possible
and abandoned us,
we can find you
   in the neighbor who
   brings in our trash can;
   in the stranger who pays
   for us at the toll booth;
   in the boss who tells us
   to skip the meeting to go
   watch our granddaughter’s game
