Mark talking Jesus talking love
is not nearly
as sweet or meme-able as John.
in a culture that throws them away.
other people’s children,
as if they aren’t disposable.
Love the actual poor –
Love last place, rejection and loneliness;
fear them, you’ll ass-kiss the world.
Love being a servant, not just the theory.
Love the people
who desperately need healing,.
Let them get close –
in their stink and their joy.
