Words Made Flesh

No more speeches or spin doctors, debates or diatribes—

Words.

Matter.

In us.

God’s love
made skin and bones
muscle and marrow
hands and hearts
God’s words.
Matter.
In us.

No more speeches or spin doctors,
debates or diatribes—no–
God’s nouns, adjectives, verbs
alive
welcoming
respecting
embracing
incarnating
belonging
in us.

Words
made
matter,

planted in salvaged soil
reclaimed
restored
valued
savored
saving
hope
in us.
