three [10/16]

10/16/22

I:


What an interesting turn of events.
What a set of circumstances the past week.

S:

Now listen: 

Much to pay attention to.
No more spilling secrets.
You deplete their magic
when poured abroad.

The greatest magicians
never reveal their tricks
but give credit where
credit is due:

Magic.


(And I thought about this
as it relates to our Lord:
is this not the essence
of his own messianic secret and hidden gnosticism?
)

I:

How should I give credit to you, O Lord? Is this not what you wanted? Your glory, shouted from the rooftops?

I have no need of it. 


Does it not give you great satisfaction to hear the rancor and the noise in your honor and in your name? 

LIPS are deceitful things. 

What gestures could ever be given to a God like this? 

Three:

Justice,

Mercy,

Humility.
