A city consumed, drowning


(after Romans 8:18-25)

A city consumed, drowning
 in moans, streets
weeping, buildings
groaning,
a saturation of pain wrapping
itself as gutters fill, tears
overflowing

we weep, anticipating
what?
an end, a beginning
either / both
neither?

we anticipate
what we do not know

stumbling on slick
sidewalks, we wait
for sunrise, dawn

the morning.

We know, as the woman endures the pains of labor, as Christ endured the cross...we know.
For the joy set before us the sufferings of this life are but a moment
