advent, week 2

When He comes
He will not be an icon of light
suspended in the heavens
like a neon sign

When He comes
He will not have to put on
some sort of costume
to clothe His immateriality
like a Halloween sheet-ghost

He already took on
bones and blood vessels
and lungs and glands and
everything else
the first time He came around
these parts

and heaven will only have made
Him brighter and brighter

we will get to hold His hands
and hear His laughter as He
makes all our materiality new
