Eucharist: a poem

28 Mar

The story

that is my story

my restoring

the acting out

that is my enactment 

Yielding of bread 

that is soft tissue 

of a body 


bitter wine 


of blood spilt

the enacting

that establishes the world

my world

In eating

there is dying

In dying  there is living

The story 

that re-stores


in night


in day
