mary and joseph beforewho
were born to bear godand
enjoyed sleeping inwhen
it rained — and cookingand
sampling foodoff
each other’s fingers,
mevushal red in their jew
veinstwo people who
lived and diedachedwhen
one they had borne was dead…
they were peopleyeswith
ordinary liveswhom
life took by the handhome.
