The Dreamer

Joseph forgave his brothers
for throwing him into the pit
for bloodying the rainbow coat
for trading him to the Ishmaelites for twenty silver coins

for it was in the pit
      that his tears watered the barren soil
it was in the dark continent
      that he first saw the sunlight
it was in his prison cell
      that he learned the meaning of dreams

when Joseph returned to his brothers
it was to feed them:
if you want to give, forgive
