in school

Today I learned of Aquinas’ metaphysics
that “pied” is a word for “spotted”
the evidence for Paul’s gospel as anti-imperial statement
the requirements for my degree
of a friend’s slow healing and small miracles
and that a mother still cries when she says the word “Newtown”.

A simpleton, I am daily struck dumb
with delight, tedium, brilliance, agony
knowledge may yet be fruit for fools
but there is no hiding from life after Eden.

Olly, Olly, in come free

  1. So beautiful.

    And so similar to my own seminary semester in Toronto… school is a good place to be this fall.
