Jesus said..."I am the gate..." John 10:9

In Media Res

By
G.K. Werner



What’s it like
with an empty head
that falls asleep
when it goes to bed


or gets things done
unfed
unwed
to thoughts that
creep and crawl
from
nook and cranny
and
come to call
when you least expect
and
your mind’s all set
to
work on work
that
isn’t much fun
but
must be done


and
there they are
the hero
the princess
the dragon of old
the bowman
the sheriff
their stories untold
?
