genealogy of desert: the Word of mission in Exodus 3

Consuming Word
bush crackles
as livid presence in living present
is unconsumed

naming Word

this is my beloved
particular, storied, watching
Moses, stolen son
bush tracking
indigenous songlines
singing ancient


Here I am
desert rock wanderer,
in silent desert, I scream
raised, stranger in a strange land
hearing Word

Ancestor Word
I am, God of past pleasure
woven through time
sperm of covenant
tracking grace bearing of desert woman
Hagar, Rebekah, Zipporah, Mary

in time
this place of hearing
makes holy
through calling, responding
