Follow, and walk not in darkness
For I am the Light of the world

              So say you of yourself
              You bear false witness
              For you know such does not count

Ah, but it does
And my witness is true
For a figure of speech gets at truth
But is not truth itself
For again, I am not one
But two, my father and I being one
A satisfying witness

              We know your father
              And where is he now?
              You are too clever by half

And you know not what you know
And know less what you do not
For you are of the halves
And I am, of the halve-not

About Greg Wright

I have worn many hats as a writer and editor over the years. Unlike my scholarly and journalistic work from the "old days" at Hollywood Jesus, Past the Popcorn, or SeaTac Blog, the writing here is of a more overtly personal and spiritual nature. I hope it provokes you as much as it provokes me.

One Response to Dialogue

  1. Greg Wright says:

    Written for my wife on her birthday. From John 8.

    Here, Peter interprets what he hears Jesus tell the Pharisees—shedding further light, as it were, on what Peter read into the encounter with the adulteress earlier in the day.

    (With a nod to the clams of Norman Dubie’s “Ars Poetica.”)
