Second Nail
Jean-Marie Lee, Morning Sketch, 2016

PLOGS BELOW (JML's Poetic Commentary)

Work of Wo-Man
Second Nail

All that I am
Including omission
Personal agenda

My true self
My spirit--
My own desiring

To be -- rather
Than doing -- rigorous
Saintly tasks

Like building my life
Around God instead
Of myself--

After complaining
After feeling guilty
After forgiving --

From realization
I committed sins
Equal to all humanity

My ado about anything
And my -- I don't about whatever
Emptying the trenches--

The slums of my soul
Festering resentment
Lingering angst

I delivered that nail
To His right hand
For Guidance--

Graciously He--
Filled my void
With a rose.
