my life source and sustainer is Jesus Christ

Wednesday, January 27, 2016



I wake mid
night, and walking back
from the bathroom
I pass a window, a charging phone.
In places I can’t see
for the dark, and too sleepy
to wait on perception,
a lightly patterned image
films my eyes

laid in place
over the unknown

Like the stories we tell
rehearsed memories of birthdays
and Christmas
a screen, paper thin to cover
forgotten days and words.
