I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say

Allahu akbar, a moment 

of no one injuring anyone anywhere.
It was after his bath and the evening
was cool and crickets. 

He hummed the tune to “Lilac Wine,” 

(I feel unready for my love...)— 

then whispered——but didn’t 

mean me, I think, or anyone 

to overhear.
