straws by Sonja Benskin Mesher

bible quotes.

the moving finger wrote,
needles in  camels eyes and something.

then there is that straw, and sod’s law,
which is something else entirely, like

money for old rope, which could tether
sad creature.

humped, and lumpy kneed moves on,

in other places,
they broke  things,
and were  put assunder.

imagining vases, that could be stuck,
we wandered wearily, until
the birds stopped singing.

yes, even in mexico.
