by John Garmon

Sometimes your words
Seemed brutal teaching us
To abide any scenario
Offering us grace
Odd or beautiful
Showing us everywhere
Openings to be human
Opportunities to read
Days on fire against
Locked doors
Giving us the art of
No difficult language
Simply openings
Everywhere our culture
Ran where songs arise
From our everyday
Living we found
Your words available
To help us through
But relatively few
Ever read you
