Lenten reflection on scripture — Do this in remembrance of me

(Luke 22:19)

Do this is remembrance –

Celebrate holidays
even when life is no party.

Organize everything yourself
without complaining,
and accept the guest-room generosity
of a stranger,
without feeling inadequate.

Sit down and eat with your friends,
even the ones who betray you.

When you see the rooster
in somebody’s future –
warn her for God’s sake,
but love him anyway.

Touch their bunions,
even when you know
there’s not a toenail fungus in hell
chance they’d touch yours.

Explain everything,
when you know
you won’t be understood.

Explain it again.
Demonstrate.

Explain it again,
and when they ask about perks,
mention the dishes.

Do this in remembrance of me –
all right now, do the part with bread.
