“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”  Romans 12:21

slowly pulling the quilt made
from squares of devilishness
over our heads, the wrongdoers
assure us over and over
it will keep us warm and safe;
you turn on your flashlight
under the shadowy covers,
‘follow me; i know where
the good scissors are kept;
we can undo all the stitches
and turn the squares into
a rag rug for the mud room.’
