second sunday in lent

“My soul thirsts for God,
    for the living God.”  Psalm 42:2

knowing how parched
is my soul, the barkeep
pulls out the bottle of aged
death, nodding as he starts
to pour, then smiling as i say,
‘make it a double,’
not noticing you outside,
handing out bottles of life
distilled in your heart
