Hour 7 – Pretenses



If you believe in

resurrection –

may it take you

gently down some

country road – with

a song about life

that will still allow you

to shed a tear


If you believe in

forgiveness –

may you line up

like stubborn boys,

who once lived

across the road –

and wash your simple

sorrows in the well.


If we live this life

with intent –

and leave this life

with no regret –

may we follow love

to the shadowy Willow

by the pond.


May we drop our

clothes, like old

pretenses –

and ease our scarred bellies

into a resurrection of mystery

and magic.
