worth for worthless

Harvey S. Mozolak

mustard smeared
of earth soiled and dragged
on the alb-white bib of his apron
the red of slaughtered lamb
dripped down on sleeves and hems
and where the iron edge
was wiped against his side
the servant
eat and drink
in order
slave and master
in order
that master may serve
and slave be mastered
the doing
for the ought undone

Luke 17:5–10
Lectionary 27
