A Life in Two Acts

Peter Sherburn-Zimmer

Yes, I witness
the story of an avenging angel

& of a people's advocate
& verity [truth] = goodness, yet...
ah, Agatha what you fit in
between cream tea
and tea!

...Me, I am cared for
by people who have never met me,
people whose names I don't even know
in the swirl of tears whose come from...where?

...between fiction and what is left after
Muslims, Catholics and Jews
got me back –whose place has no god-- into this world
with their prayers and good intentions—

No morality play
nor miracle play
nor neither any Greek mystery play

complete with guardian angels...
can even touch the grace of this world.
