poem: grace


The congregants

welcomed  a different

older

compassionate


young man

discussing Jesus

who sat among them

they, a spitting image of Jesus

black welcoming white

Mother Emmanuel


oddly

nervously

shuddering

unJesus

Martin 

Coretta Scott King




for an hour

before he


pulled his Glock
