Fatal CoincidenceBeep, Beep, Beep! The alarm goes off. It’s 7:15 a.m., Tuesday, November 27th. I, Jeff Carbott, am still asleep in my bed. My face is buried under my pillow. I raise one arm and hit the off button on the alarm clock. I pull head out from under the pillow, my feet ache from the previous work day. Glancing over at my darling wife, I quietly slip out of the sheets into my robe. Angie turns over in her sleep. Her face is slightly visible in the light from the window. Her dark brown, silky hair lies on her shoulders. The covers hug her baby bump. She’s almost due. Today is the last day, before her maternity leave. For a second, I feel guilt for what I’m about to put her through. But it’s too late to turn back now.

EasterRemember what you love,
you with sand in your teeth
and the feral burn of hunger
in your eyes.
God sends his regrets.
He made you grasping and slow,
in a late hour
when the wine washed low.
Remember what you love.
Fall to your knees in the toss
and the swell, quell
the appetite of the cold black sea.
Beg blessings for your home
and the salt-sick trees.
Reach what lies near:
the fat-faced child, the sweet-soft lamb;
tether the tantrum, trickle the blood.
Offer psalms to what is holy,
whisper the name of what you love
as it bobs in the bleak mad sea.
Keep in Touch!
