Mark 12: 13-34 – Questions

There are questions.

They ask about what is in their pockets
because they want to keep it.
They ask about what is in their future
because they want to cheat it.

One asks about commandments
in hopes of being safe.
Jesus answers with love –
and even the one with questions
recognizes that truth.

Some questions are masks,
some are nooses,
and some are three-card-monte.

But other questions are a heart hanging out
looking for the way back home.
