To Our Beloved Stephen Jarrell Williams by Ruth Z Deming

Who knew your websites
Calvary Cross and
Dead Snakes
would vanish
with the morning light?

Fool that I am
I thought they’d
be inspiring us
for years to come
like your God
eternal!

Can you see me
Stephen? I’ve
said the Bar-ruch-a
over my cheese omelet
watered the garden
and howdy’d the birds

Yet my mind is
disturbed. Your
mustache quivers
in your online
photo. Unlike you
I am no bard nor
prophet, yet closing
down your mansions
does not bode well.

Keep your unblinking faith
Know that we who followed you
Will keep you tucked inside
and always remember your
emails, “You have been published
in Calvary Cross”
Cheers and blessings,
Stephen.
