Maybe we will collect the stones from your garden,
leaving holes in which you may plant your lentils and beans,
and then maybe when winter comes
we will throw the stones through the windows of your home
as you eat your lentils and beans
in front of the fire for which we collected the wood for
wrapped in the blanket we parted the wool from your sheep’s body for
and maybe, we will force the stones down your throat
so that they will fill your stomach and windpipe,
blocking the ingesting and the expelling
of the Bible verses that you don’t
actually understand,
so that we may feast
on our lentils and beans
in silence.
