Nativity of St. John the Baptist

they told me to lean

into the arms

of all those angels

they’ll catch you, cradle you,

teach you how to sleep.

I left the dark womb first.

with a flashlight in hand,

they shoved me out,

asked me to woo

all those wide eyes.

I’m not the messiah,

but I’m here to gauge

if you’re ready for one.
