Refection on Matthew 15: 21-28

She is not the downward facing dog,
and he is not at his godliest,
and yet a child is healed.

And, if you’ve ever
let your ignorance show,
like toilet paper stuck to a shoe,
your first reaction
flash like tooth-spinach,
or your prejudice fart in public,
you’ve got this.

Being tired is a bitch,
the only one in this story,

and everyone of us has said
some damn-near unforgiveable thing,
but in the end what matters
is not — what did you learn?

but — was the child healed?
