Can You Say the Same

The Gideons recommend warnings in times
of indifference, forgiveness in times of conviction.

That morning was a precursor to autumn,
literally; nothing was dying in me.  Quite
the opposite.  I withdrew, gladly. 

This is a cameo: definition 1b: a gem so cut. 

The page was ripped; God understood;
I ripped the page from the bedside Bible.
