third monday in lent

“May integrity and uprightness preserve me,
    for I wait for you.”  Psalm 25:21

noticing my twitching knees
and shuffling feet, new friends
Honor and Justice
each grab a hand, so
i can’t dart into the street
before you blow the whistle,
stopping temptation’s busy traffic,
so that we can cross
over to Eden’s playground
