(Luke 24:13-35)

i take
a shortcut just
  down this alley,
where anger
  and agony come
tagging after me;

i explore the wide avenues
of the world,
  whose hope
  has been potholed
     with despair;

  i glance at the map,
and stumble down
the next street,
  only to find sin
  standing in every
enticing me with its
fingers sticky
        with temptation;

then we turn down
Emmaus Road,
  where the aroma
  of fresh-baked grace
wafts out each window,
and, tapping me on the shoulder,
     you shout, 'go!'
  and race me
