Can We Do This/That?


oh my, but the questions some christians do ask

“Can we do this?” and “Can we do that?” and

“Is this other thing something we can do now?”

as though the answers were not already there

so plainly writ, just staring them in their faces

it gives one cause to think, perhaps, an answer

is not what theyre looking for, but approval

for choices already made, with a forlorn hope

to escape the death, which also so plainly writ,

stands waiting in the shadows of their denials


Can We do This/That?
