Called to wilderness

The voice called
to the wilderness seeking
fulfillment of a promise made

called to the desert of Judea
a promise made

the desert with its dirt and rock
wind, sun
caravans passing by
trading in camel’s hair

a feast of insects:
a feast from insects:

a feast to call repent
and be baptized

they came to repent
they came to be baptized
they came to hear the words:
the word, the preface

The preface,
not the beginning
the preface
not the end

the preface
the water, not
the spirit

He comes after
and I tremble
