Louie Clay- A Poem

Angels Unawares 

I did not notice 
     the large stranger 
enter the mission. 
     Drunk and hostile, 
he appeared before me, 
     as if an apparition, 
his fist raised.

"Does God love me!?" 
     he shouted.

A strength not my own 
     canceled all my fear.

"Of course, and we do too."
     I said.

He collapsed, weeping.

Louie Clay, 77, is a retired teacher and lives in East Orange, NJ.
