Lead us not

After Matthew 6:13

It is there, a scarlet mist
or fog, sticking to our skins
or it feels like sticking,
surrounding and guiding us
to falter in the face
of difficulty, to rely upon
what we usually do,
to trip drunkenly into
business as usual, making 
ourselves little gods,
little idols. Lead us not
there; lead us to the rock,
the cleft in the rock,
the safe place,
the hiding place,
