third wednesday in Lent

“If my father and mother forsake me,
    the Lord will take me up.”  Psalm 27:10

we come home
only to find a suitcase
(containing all we have)
on the front porch, a note
telling us all the locks
have been changed, and
through the tears, we
can barely see you sitting
in your banged-up, rusting
pickup, until you throw open
the passenger door, hollering
‘hop in!  let’s go hang out
at my place!  I’ve got plenty
of extra space.’
