Before And After Avarice

(if you are viewing this via email, the website has a recording of this poem and commentary; click the title above)


For some time now, greed and selfishness have held morbid interest for me. So, so much of life looks different once you recognize these sins in yourself. So, my eyes are wide open this evening as I read a chapter on “Greed vs. Generosity” in Brant Pitre’s helpful “Introduction to the Spiritual Life.”

The poem’s last line is a double-entendre. I have made enemies with double-entendres. But in my poetry I mean them for good.
