Day 280 – Who Is Mark And Mary?

In the great wide sanctum of benevolence,
where we hear our daily bread
and do as sponges do-
at least, most of us try-

in that place of education,
in our privileged calming truth,
where we don’t deserve to hear but hear indeed,

where we should graciously thank
for all our ears, all our faculties,

there is Mark and Mary, always.

Mark and Mary, a giggling cult
of privileged calming truth
which we wish they would hear.

Who is Mark and Mary
that would dare to sit amiss,
sit and kiss, stop their ears
in the temple?

Who is Mark and Mary
who would make themselves known
to the flock as an idle annoyance?

Mark and Mary, who are you
who cannot sit still
and leave love lie
in the house of the Lord?
