In Transit: Part III (A Collaboration)

The collaboration continues. Thank you again, Tom Darin Liskey, for your photographic inspiration. 

VI. What I Gave Up for Lent


I’m not even Catholic,
but this year everyone is
catholic (small c),
letting go of ideas, things,
gods (small g).
I could not decide
what to let go for Lent,
so it was decided for me:
Facile faith, believing
success means blessed,
a rut is a kind of wisdom,
that close equals intimate.
I would give up that and more
to keep feeling
this song in my chest,
the sun on my face.
