Seeking Sin Eaters

(Genesis 3:8, Revelation 15:16)

x

We say to the sun

Or moon or stars

Or hills or valleys or any part

Of Earth that might

x

To cover us,

To hide us from

The wrath of God

Or of people

Or of other consequences

x

To take our names,

Apply them to another

Quantity,

To stick our names to a board

Inside another

Neighborhood, a sign

That says

We are there

(don’t come looking for us

here)

x

We hide

We want to hide

From judgment

Real or imagined

In this, imagined

Is real,

Is enough
