Good Friday 2017

 

Who can bear to read

The story of the humans?

Written as it is

In the bodies of their children.

Chlorine-choked

Ball-bearing broken

Wrapped in dust and laid

In the broken heart of the earth.

 

He made it his own,

The story of the humans

And let them write an ending

Upon his body there,

With fist and foot and implement

Son-and-daughter slain and rising

Up to bear their children out

Of the broken heart of the earth.
