FUNERAL NOTES  by Judy Shepps Battle

Posted in Judy Shepps Battle with tags on July 20, 2010 by Scot

I died tomorrow           but was
resurrected yesterday
in jail (my own)
in health (who’s definition?)
in hope (fear and gentle prayer)
I died today
looking at yesterday and
living tomorrow.

Night came to Milwaukee
I didn’t see it                I was
dead and didn’t know it
Milwaukee was stoned and
ignored me.

Christ is a rugged man
lugs a rugged cross and
passes through Milwaukee
unnoticed.
