Evidence abounds

After Isaiah 28

The evidence of destruction
impending abounds, the bruised
and beaten refugees seeking
sanctuary inside our gates,
the cost of food exploding,
the mistrust with which we
observe each other
with averted eyes,
the ridicule with which we
greet each succeeding
proclamation and rule.
Evidence abounds of the terror
we know in our hearts, and we
speculate endlessly on whom
might save us, might rescue us,
might deliver us from what
surrounds us, the storm
whose clouds arch
the citadel, casting
their shadows and
darkness wherever
we seek light.
