Encounter

 

hate!

 

sudden

vicious

flaming

 

destroying with its fire

 

reason

love

concern

 

your life is obscene

you appal me

in hate

I turn a page

 

suddenly

wrathfully

 

why?

 

I too am ill

with chains as ugly

as yours

in the eye of God

 

I too am ill

yet loved by God

as you must be

 


 

Upon reading about a man named

Todd Shuttleworth in the Time of
