Born Divine

trace power’s potential
through competing visions
winnow kernel from chaff
accumulate a mass of nobodies
in the wrong time at the right place

announce a new standard
expanding a shared journey
beyond empiric power
within volunteered wilderness

redeem Bethlehem’s dynasty
release Egypt’s painted tombs
come a long way home
to Nazareth’s anonymity
glimpse Jordan’s other side

milk and honey and fig and vine
enough for all
when all means all
why settle for sequential power brokers

a next creation
my body my blood
claimed and given
and quite enough
