I have long since let him go.

He was gone from the moment I learned of

his enwombment.

It was I of earth

and he of sky,

old Abraham

had taught me well of

a heart full of tinder, on

stone of faith,

a ram in the thicket, for

my Isaac.

I surrender because

that is what a father does.

One life to young, one life to old.

Nonetheless we,

allegiance bound,

know who holds the future.

Not we, He,

a ram in the thicket.
