Ash Wednesday

I look through the pantry
Just ate the last of the meat
The jar of oil is now empty
Preparations have started

The radio is unplugged
now it ts in a closet
There has been no silence recently
Life has been about distraction

Now there is a devotion to silence
To dry foods (are eggs allowed?)
A time eliminating old distractions
Is this really sacrifice

The priest speaks as the people prepare
“Remember, you are dust, and you will return to dust”
