Today for your listening pleasure I bring you a performance of “Come Closer” by spoken-word artist Anis Mojgani. I’ve heard a couple of different versions; the clip below is from a film called A Strange Brand of Happy.
If you’re as taken with it as I am and want to hear it again, this one is the first version I heard, filmed at New York University in 2009.
Is there a line that stands out to you? I can’t pick a favorite, but I know this bit struck me:
“Know that something softer than us but just as holy planted pieces of Himself into our feet that we might one day dance our way back–know that you are almost home. Come just a little bit closer.”
