EXODUS

Egypt: Gizeh

Egypt: Gizeh (Photo credit: Brooklyn Museum)

Godly promptings through years of desire
thwarted by egos and shadows and demons all,
vanquished in burning bushes now
by the flames of a cancer.

Fear spreading, angst rising
lonely pilgrim-in-waiting.

Then it is time. Egypt expels.

Golden calves left behind. A desert beckons.

I take up my camel, my Joseph and I

We flee.
