Did you think that intercession was awfully spiritual?
When it comes in gasps
Like a woman in labour?
When its sighs rise from your guts
With the sharpness of broken glass?
And what do you think about being
The salt of the earth?
Is that spiritual?
Or is it your sweat and tears
Pouring out over things you may never understand?
When the mind is in anguish
The body knows what to do
And God needs it to intercede
As he needed His, and yes
It is awfully spiritual.
