The greatest of teachers

The greatest of teachers won’t hesitate,
And fear is not the end of this.

Only love can save us now, 

Fom barren landscape,
The Greatest of teachers, 

Being more than words,
Know already that wisdom is feminine,

Did not birth, nor was she birthed, 

Is freedom robes,
Robes for the homeless,

Obadiah, Habakkuk, Nahum and Zephaniah, Lamentations and
The Song of Songs,

Alone in church,
Now,

Dance.

Cancer

I’ve lost the use of my heart,
But I’m still alive.

I hear voices,

The hustler and the prostitute,
The gleaming car salesman,

Audible to me all,

The rat at the corner,
Selling drugs,
My husband in the study being busy.

I’m crying everyone’s tears.

Midnight Gardener

jacob-y-angel-pelean

I hear God in cushion prints,
Leopard pants,

Ancestors,
We Forget;

What if it took place at midnight, would you

Stack hay and win,
Chicago with the broad shoulders,

Hunt mosquitos,
Midnight lover, the

Ebullient wrestler in a,
Pink Venetian mask,

Would you,
Be a brute,

Pretending the contender was not God,
Brisk breeze,

Be the one who,
Proof read the script,

Then promptly forgot,

Alzheimer,
And Jung?

Anger never works.
