Among the Gentiles

but with you
it must not be so
for it is not so
with Me

Bethlehem
Nazareth
Gethsemane
where
as people minded their sheep
the galaxy
was repoured

and St. Louis
where
this noon
as you came in
out of the cold
a Star of David snowflake
on your sleeve
before it melted
perfectly
told all
