advent: week 4

Cells unite
and then divide
and divide
and divide

and become
wrist bones
hair follicles
vocal cords

inside of a young girl’s body
in a backwater town
in the Middle East
under a foreign regime

and the old men see visions
of angels

and the young men dream
their dreams of the same

this is no ordinary son of Abraham
[before Abraham was He is]

this is no ordinary son of David
[He brings mercy in His tiny hands]

this is the scandal
this is the story

come breathe it in
don’t miss it
