Simeon

the muscles in his limbs are so massive it is almost surreal

beautiful       surreal

it’s a young man dancing and the

blue veins that run through

the sculptured stone become

his veins and he is

alive

rejoicing          dancing

he’s carrying the Scrolls upon

his rock hard shoulder

the promises of God are all

Lives and all he knows

this man          statue

he holds the certainty of the vindication

of the prophets –

this stone from the wall of David

the veins carry blood-that’s blue until

It touches the air

he’s dancing, and on his shoulder

Is the rolled parchment

The Law

touch the stone with

your hands,

don’t be afraid

he’ll dance in your dreams

(his hope will be your hope)
