845 it’s not enough but all i’ve got 7-18-19

I will not stretch
as some do.
I cannot reach
that far
to give just-cause
to a young girl
with an angel smile
and a trache-flap
wrapped in gauze,
whose twisted hand I kissed
in worship
when she touched my arm
to thank me
for some random kindness.

For now,
all I have to say
is
on That day,
God will show
and we will know.

But,
if not for that,

I got nothing.
