and God will wipe away every tear

by Francine Marie Tolf

“and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes”

At its center,
the circle inverts:
the food chain collapses,
the lion eats straw.
Yet tears are not reversed,
but are wiped away.
So necessary to me, that God
who lets tears fall.
Who touches a quail’s grief
with his own hand.
