    penultimate

    on this tuesday night
    we sat around the table
    as though we had
    all the night we wanted
    to eat and drink and
    laugh and talk and hope
    we even had time for pie

    tomorrow night
    our prodigal planet
    will wander as far
    as it ever does from
    the light of the sun
    and then start back

    what a gift that we can
    live out a prophetic parable
    with pork chops and pecan pie
    leaning into the light
    even as we head deeper
    into the darkness

    Peace,
    Milton
