I just have to wait a little bit,
and take in all that is around me,
the flotsam and jetsam of my life,
that piles up and hangs out and scatters through
Oh, dear God, I really need to take care of that—umm, later.
Is that thing still around?
Wow, I have been looking for that piece of my heart for a long time.
So much juiciness and flavor,
so much junk and whatever.
So much of me, so much of You.
Holy and Hallowed and Love.
