Communion wine

Communion wine

Spilled on the floor

It was messy

The cross

Not a sweet, sedated

Crucifixion

Messy and raw

Death

Nothing our messes

Can even come close to

He can take care of it all

Then the bucket of water

To clean the mess

Spills

Even our attempts

To clean up

Make a mess

Best to

Just come as we are

Leave the cleanup to Him
