Wednesday 2020: Cornerstone

Look for the cornerstone,
smutted and mossed,
every so often
sandblasted clean,
surprising anew;
not the one
five blocks up
with date and name,
but below, at ground
level, hefting
the weight of the world,
for the most part,
without which the whole
edifice, name, date
and all falls

Also from today’s Daily Office readings:

The Lord has brought to an end in Zion appointed feast and sabbath, and in his fierce indignation has spurned king and priest. The Lord has scorned his altar, disowned his sanctuary … – Lamentations 2:6-7

But I call to God to witness against me – it was to spare you that I refrained from coming to Corinth. – 2 Corinthians 1:23
