Bath

Me again
Grimy
Wobbly
Faithless
Stubbornly starving

Pockmarked with pitfalls
Plowed deep in pride
Strangled by selfishness
Butting another brick wall
Me again

You again
Purging waters pour
Doused over, under, in and through
Scrubbed clean

You again
Fear firmed to faith
Shaken legs steadied
Broken limbs splinted
A deluge of divine grace
And me, again
Bleached blood-white
Beneath a divine laundering
