“‘I have not lived in a house since the day I brought up the people of Israel from Egypt to this day, but I have been moving about in a tent and a tabernacle.’”  2 Samuel 7:6

convinced we leave
you behind when the
church is closed up, we
never notice you sitting with
the bone-weary mom
on the playground bench,
the trans teenager
walking home alone from school,
the senior citizen sitting
on their front porch
staring into the distance
towards the graveyard
