Prescience

It*s all tied together.  Now you see it.  Now you don*t.  Still... it will always come 'round again.

It*s all tied into
Thanksgiving
Secular
Sacred
Thanksgiving.
How did I not see
The connection of end times
And beginning again,
Always
Beginning again?
Indeed
I*m sure I must have written this
Before.
The Church
Society
Someone
in their prescience
Sandwich Thanksgiving between
Christ the King
And Advent 1.
The final Thursday
Of November,
The harvest gathered in,
The checkout guy
In the grocery store
Telling us the story
Of wild turkeys being so much
More flavorful
I saw it on PBS
He said
The combination of his Hawaiian shirt
And dreadlocks
And wild turkeys melding
With the blue sky day
After church.
It*s all tied into
Thanksgiving
Doncha know?
Thanksgiving
Beginnings
Endings
Hawaiian shirts and dreadlocks
Wild turkeys
And oh
Simply everything.
