Prayer before a holy week scripture

The most popular hashtag any time
on Instagram is #love

and so this scripture must be trending
because there isn’t any story
so full of love and hurt
and the willingness
to be a ass on a borrowed donkey,
wash feet, be misunderstood,
bitch-slapped,
have friends sleep, kiss you to death
say they don’t even know you,

and, God, that’s before
everything really goes viral.

Help us follow you. Amen.
