The ever new commandment: love one another, just as I have loved you . . .
I pray help me love better and before I reach amen I think if all the ways I will not.
I'm going to fall asleep in the garden while you sweat blood.
I'm going to betray you, your fate sealed with a kiss.
Over and over and still you come back.
Random thought passes by: This is why we killed you at 33 and I'm still alive at 53.
Love one another, you said. Ever new to the recalcitrant, recidivist heart.
