an advent prayer

i want you more than a cigarette

      but can’t toss this pack quite yet

i don’t want to trade the physical

      for the ethereal

so come ye closer

      than the smoke that’s in my lungs

calm my shaky fingers

      be the heat upon my tongue

i want to act justly, love mercy, walk in humility

      but abstractions just don’t do it for me.

      please come closer.
