Poem based on 2nd Sunday after Pentecost Mark 3:20-35

Out on the edge
Of what we know
As existence
Stands one
In a moment filled
With the hungry ears
-------- and hearts
------------ and souls
for the last drop of blood
this moment can give
and looking down on the crowd
from the inside
Christ knew the hunger
---- felt the pain
and loved them
while those
from far inside the edge
see only through their eyes
a world
dangerously close
to reality
---- breaking in
and call upon the spotlight to beam
---- center stage
to which Christ responds
by turning up
-------- the house lights
showing us
---- as if for the first time

our neighbor
