574 - Prophet

are you Elijah. who was it at
Emmaus? if you want to discuss
the latest St.Antony sighting - chat
about such things is forbidden - no fuss

should be made of them. at the end-times
they happen anyway -and his face
round the next corner of rock- mimes
blessing. not a word how he replaces

himself. only the Virgin though speaks.
the prophets have all done with speech - their Word
has gone where it does not repeat.
tell me on the mount - who is the third

that we see. who is it who comes again.
the kingdom is now and never when.
