to see...

"How I want to see the weight of glory break my thick scales, the weight of glory smash the chains of desperate materialism, split the numbing shell of deadening entertainment, bust up the ice of catatonic hearts.

I want to see God,
who pulls on the coat of my skin and doesn't leave me alone in this withering body of mortality;

I want to see God,
 who gives gifts in hospitals, and gravesides and homeless shelters and refugee camps
and in rain falling on sunflowers
and stars falling over hayfields
 and silver scales glinting upriver
and sewage flowing downriver.

Eucharisteo is everywhere and I want to see eucharisteo everywhere and I want to remember how badly I really want to see..."
