The law

After Psalm 1

The law, we understand,
is what to do or not,
what is allowed,
what is not,
instructions, restrictions

and yet more

more: the entire teaching
more: the entire message
more: the entire story

not only the do’s
not only the do not’s
but also the story
all of it
in detail and
glorious technicolor

the wind blows
the wind carries the chaff away
the wind knocks the seed to the soil

all of it

the entire story
