In the distance someone’s asking
why it won’t stop hurting,
and the church is working like a round,
everyone trying to start
but all anyone can say
is what they’ve said before,
old stories, old prayers
all that’s breaking through.
From “Radiotherapy” by Jake Adam York (1972 - 2012). Deeply saddened to hear news of his passing today. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
