broken arrow (longing home)

In Rome, he knows, only spears will do;
daggers (at least) issued each one,
citizens gear to stay rebellion,
brigands terrorizing their land.

Fools, these Christ-ones “shalom” praying,
table stretching branch cut young,
something like compassion waking,
something like or asking home.
________

And when he saw him he had compassion, and ran toward him…
– Luke 15:20 (cf 7:13, 10:33)
