My 2-Year-Old Son Has a Febrile Seizure
(Genesis 22; Exodus 11-13)
He looked like a crazed prophet
A holy fool in ecstasy
A Pentacostal speaking tongues:
Eyes rolled back,
Arms locked and joints stiff.
His body was magma.
His sheets were soiled.
I took him in my arms
I thought he would die.
Please do not take our firstborn sons.
