Pearls Before Swine

The friend of my friend carries
a hunk
of nutmeg
in the pocket
of his jeans.
He is a chef
and he believes in the nutmeg.
My friend carries the gold
foil chocolate wrappers.
He is a Romantic
and all Romantics believe
in luck.
My empty pockets are full
of expectations.


Here it comes.


What if they had commercial folding tables at the Sermon on the Mount? How many Apostles does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

Lead us not into Temptation.

Be humble in your sleepy hands on this world.
Be a killer in Heaven.

Love, Joe Nolan
