  • Fish and Loaves

    “And he said to them, ‘Do you not yet understand?’"
    - Mark 8:21

    I think I understand.
    There is not much to know.
    Like a dog does his master -
    Enough to know his hand
    When it points and gives a meal,
    When it pats my silken head.
    A mumbled word: all that's heard
    Midst dreams of balls and bones.

    I think I understand.
    There is not much to know,
    Like a baby with a book -
    When the words and pictures squirm
    Like worms upon the page.
    Up or down, it does not matter,
    The intention of the writer.
    There is not much to know.

    I think I understand.
    My poverty is great, the weight
    A brazen bell, clanging when I step
    Or turn. Or when I start just barely.
    I think I understand

    My poverty is great.
