Covenant

Come close:
for rage has dawned instead of the sun
and blood has flowed in the riverbeds.

Come close:
for fear grows faster than a weed
and loneliness swarms like locust.

Come close:
if death is coming (or if God comes first)
let it find us together. With love together.

on Zephaniah 2:1-2
