"Ministry of Irritation" by Janice Sevre-Duszynska, ARCWP

   On a feast day you came
   Spirit-Led, oops
   yet another woman of extravagant
   A woman who gets things done
   You did it--Spirit-Led
   you crossed the line
   and entered their space
   splashing him, rebaptizing him
   the oil flowed alive,
   moving in dynamic Spirited
   perfuming, scented, alluring
   you drew us in--anointing him

   Oh woman who dared to bring him
   Oh woman who dared to feed his
   who heard the Voice
   who named the Truth
   reminding him, reminding him,
   naming, calling him in your
   poetic display of divine madness
   Mary of Bethany
   an Easter Morning woman claiming
   The Easter Morning Man ...
   freeing woman
   we remember you
