A spiritual sequel to the short story “Pride”.

[7]“Where shall I go from your Spirit?
Or where shall I flee from your presence?

[11]If I say, ‘Surely the darkness shall cover me,
and the light about me be night,’
[12]even the darkness is not dark to you;
the night is bright as the day,
for the darkness is as light with you.”

You know who you are.

Big Sur, taken by yours truly.

Deal with it.

Are you not my brother?
Am I not your son?
Are they not your daughters?
Are you not our parents?


A Biblical-immersive poem.

though shall not lust

honor thy father
honor thy mother
