fifth thursday in lent

“He asked them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’” Mark 8:29a

you are the spirits distiller
who stops looking at profits
to start making hand sanitizers,
you are the health director
who remains calm while
the rest of us embrace panic,
you are the high school kids
who lose their shining moment
in the spring musical, but
sing for strangers on social media;
you are
we long to be
