And on that day


After Acts 8: 1-3

And on that day, that day
of Stephen, that day
of Stephen and the stones

that moment of begging
to forgive them, them
with the stones

and on that day a madness
broke out, a great boil
erupting, spewing itself
across the city, splattering
the people, marking
the door frames
with blood

dragging them
through door frames
with blood

forcing them from the city
into Judea, into Samaria

forcing them to carry

the gospel outwards

Well done. And I can't help but thinking that on that day...The Son, stood to greet him.
