political bedfellows…


our bed is empty when you are there
death’s black coldness grasp even our souls as you approach

shall not bear false witness…

do not bear false witness

the brown bag prophet
was heading off
to the soup kitchen
when he stopped
and asked me
if i could think
of an example
of someone
bearing false witness
i presumed
that was going
to be the topic
of discussion
at the church
and i said
that nothing came
to mind
he laughed
and said
i take it
you haven’t been
the goings-on
in washington
