Boundary Breaker V

Party-man, un-ascetic, no hair shirts,
locusts or wild honey for me.
I keep the party going, turning water into wine
sit at table with those despised
and those esteemed.
Prostitutes pour perfume on my feet,
wiping those same feet with their hair;
preparing me for sacrificial service.
I then make washing others’ feet
the mark of those who follow me.
I welcome women to sit at my feet
as disciples, to choose the better part,
for all are welcome to sit and eat
at my Messianic feast;
just as each then becomes
the servant, not Master, of all.
