Prayer


Abba, Father,
              let me give back
                            what You gave me!
pass me the cup,
                   I’m thirsty!
Don’t save me!
                    Rather
let them curse me,
           throw me into the dirt,
                                spit in my face,
                   disgrace me.
Let them deny me!
                        I need it!
I rip open my shirt,
                spread my arms crosswise,--
crucify me!
               I can’t perish unheeded,--
I’m a poet!
              They’ll know it
                                   once I arise....
