April 1987

 

After Karltje 87

 

we walk through the wrack

of others ruin

uncaring

 

there

but for the grace of God

go we

 

bodies at our feet

 

once alive

 

victims of our love

the burden of us

that at last has laid them low

still uncaring

in the flames of our faith

 

empty eyes

at a preacher staring

hungry

in the midst of plenty

 

Christ

would have gone to the cross

just to save one child

from being lost*

 

suddenly opened

 

a hand extended

a body stands

 

again Christ lives!
