Listen to the Answer

Elisha said to her, What shall I do for you?
II Kings 4: 2

they threaten to take her children--
split up the family
unfit the court says
unable to support her children,
neglect the court says,
she is in a hard place
the woman living
in the flat with peeling paint
and heat that comes and goes
what can I do for you?
"the only thing I own,"
she says, "is my tiredness."
at the end of her day

What shall I do for you?
