On Talking with the Former Teacher Much Involved with My Conviction in Clinton, Illinois
Joris John Heise
My Eliphaz, we may not talk of sin,
But causes, consequences—of a legal sort—
Who got mad?—and avoid the threads that spin
Beyond my mere catastrophe—this sport
Of God’s odd play with me. You are a star
In Clinton, carry social weight, while I
Remain a stumbling child, come from far
And branded now a Thief, a Loser—Why?
Like Job and Jesus, I believe all pain
Is wrought towards resurrection—Joris Heise
Gets fresh grace, insight, love, forgiveness, gain--
And change from crucified to Paradise.
Job’s whirlwind tells timeless love, not law—
Beyond this moment dawns the God of Awe.
