in the beginning
it starts with chewing equally on both sides of the mouth

in the beginning was the worry
and remembering that yellow silk shirt you wore once to the library

and the worry was made flesh
when you thought you’d been orphaned, and donating it, so that never happens again

and the worry was made flesh and dwelt among us
so maybe it ends in watching true crime hopped up on caffeine so you can 

see the glory
and try to feel familiar to yourself
