Eating an Orange on Mt. Carmel on Ash Wednesday

Here on the mountain
where the fierce prophet of fire
did battle with the bloodied priests of Ba’al,

where we can see the haze hanging
over that war wearied valley of death
where apocalyptic kings gather again and again and again,

I am eating an orange,
on this Ash Wednesday
and I am sharing a slice with you.
