"Let hot be hot and cold be cold, let the stone be hard and heavy."

"People grew bored waiting for Moses, too—
some never liked him anyway,
another Mr. Know-It-All,
and why so assured after forty years
of wrong turns? And what made so many women
look at him that way?"
- from "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" by Connie Wanek in her book "On Speaking Terms" (2010) from Copper Canyon Press.
