22. Interventions

Moses cried out to the LORD, "What shall I do
with this people?” God said Strike the rock there
with the staff you struck the Nile with.
Between her right eye and the space she has entered
the screen suggests what companions can't see:
It looks like you’ve entered a church, would you like to pray?
One step says, Remove from the oven the dish
and fish out the garlic, which I do, and the rest I do,
too, including ten minutes of cooling before eating.
Turning onto Graven Street in Tigard, OR,
the driver's alerted by a sign above the sign:
the street ends dead.
In one account he hangs himself, in another he jumps
from a cliff and his guts burst forth in a field.
One of several instances.
