Job’s Riddle

Job’s Riddle

“Why do I take my flesh in my teeth, And put my life in my hands?” Job 13:14.

A clay pot
Infused with the breath
Of the Great
- I AM.

Or better yet
An urn.

The stench of death
Is on my breath
And speaks decay
Through every
Crack
And crevice
Of who I AM.

I speak
For I must speak
And speak aright
But when I speak
I speak deceit
And taking life
Between my teeth
I betray

All that I AM
And all that I AM 
Not.
