The Spirit must scream
plummet down
like a bird of prey
and sit fierce
talons clenched
in your bleeding lips

and your words become
his Word
and his Words become
your words
that your speech
dead in the agony of self
might be resurrected
in self-extinction
-John Leax in Grace is Where I live (quoted in Eugene Peterson's the Jesus Way)
