Poetic Responses to Psalms and Scripture


O happy the man to whom the Lord

imputes no guilt,

in whose spirit is no guile.

 

I kept it secret and my frame was wasted.   

 

          Ps. 32:2-3

 

Thoughts snake,

hatched after weeks of brooding.

They bite themselves

to keep company.

 

Is this a maze?

You

call me out.

 

I’m mucking blind

with such a headache.

 

To be free

it’s understood:

I must tell someone.

 

You already know,

Friend.

 

Still,

I hate to mention it.
