Image them
not as liberal
not as conservative
not as choice or life
but as human souls deceiving strife.

Imagine them
as a woman at a well
or a young boy
mute and foaming
when we fell.

Imagine that woman's reaction
had Jesus thrown a harsh word
instead of a loving embrace.

Imagine asking
the Holy Spirit
to intervene
not to change those
with whom we disagree,
but to know them.
