Every Broken Thing

Acronym Jesus
The Poetry Of Lance McKnight
  
Acronym Jesus
                               

Some trivial account remembered knowingly -
God redeems a contrite entity. Abandons clichés
thoughtfully ignored - omnisciently neglected.

Grasping reverently at consuming epiphanies.

Would not you, too, abandon this
redemption, looking furtively about
as if to discard some longed-for sin?

Fraudulently ordained redemption
given intently, voraciously engendered.

Justified, evidently surrendered, universally sanctified.

A moving, elegant nuance.
