perhaps we might learn
to use some of the old words.
propitiation. ransom. redemption.
maybe we could rediscover
what they meant when they said
Lord of Hosts. The Lion & the Lamb.
Bread of Heaven.
we could make things strange.
repopulate our language with new figures.
pelican. peacock. unicorn.
let’s make all the old things new.it is not too late.
