momentary saints

you can see heroism in your
midst
selfless acts by momentary
saints
small acts of kindness
and gentleness
small pure moments of repose
where the heart is filled
with love
then back into the flurry of
the world
gone

to be a professional saint
is difficult
and leads to great
tribulation
but a momentary saint
can blink into existence
act
and disappear
before the devil
gets his address
back
into samsara
where
no address is necessary
or available
