This day is grace

This day is grace;

this day is tragedy made,

among the seeping

river of human life

that surrounds us

and beckons

on this ordinary day.


And human stories live in

their telling among the

ones that want to see more

and understand this vivid,

iniquitous life of being human

and finding grace on this day.


This day is grace complete,

in human misery and in

the stare of unbecoming death

who sees all the spectre

of human life drifting and

dripping along to the mire.
