The Others


How can I be
haughty
towards another
when my own
unveiled head, and
my voice
heard in the assembly 1     
are but the
least of my
wrongs?

If I’m going to
argue the indisputability
of God’s existence,
because-he-is-
so-real-to-me,
how can I call
my own sighting
(surely impeded by
earth’s dark glass 2 )
more accurate
than another’s?

Is my arrogance
(clumsily disguised as
humble conviction)
any less 
an abomination 
than an
other’s misstep?

Or all we all
others, together
predestined and
desperate
for
forgiveness?
