Unadorned God

We crave celebrity.

We want to be heard
Remembered
Immortal
Eternal

But what if God is all those things?

What if He is irresistible?

So He comes in disguise…

Ordinary baby
Refugee
Blue collar guy

So we have a choice to love Him

Undazzled by all these marks of a king
We see only the naked broken
Man instead–
All indignity
our collective broken
Soul

I parse this down for the crazy woman
You will meet in the parking lot
Where the carts are mere flocking birds

To tell you
do not miss this
Irresistible Love-
God with all the cities of the world
In His Eyes
