My beloved teaches Congress and American Government at Northeastern IL University. We are watching the ripples together. We are both amazed. He is governmentally amazed. I am theologically amazed.

In my blue chair
On Mondays and Fridays
I watch the ripples move
Across the country
From a stone tossed
In our large
Country-sized pond.
First one judge
Now three
They decide to join
The movement
Of the waters
Skipping stones.
They land
Across the Potomac
Settle there.
