*Entertaining Angels Unawares

a subtle shift
as a stranger walks in
his crossing the threshold
takes you across a doorway too
an angel big as Michael is behind him
taps his shoulder, says ‘you’re it’
you are at a playground
spirits are playing tag
 all day long

*long after writing this poem I remembered Hebrews 13:2 from years ago...
'do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers,
for thereby some have entertained angels unawares'
