jesus.

today you rise
from the dead.

your followers
celebrate your
sacrifice.
for sinners. for all.
you gave your life,
they say.

tomorrow,
Pontius Pilates’
offsprings
will wash
their hands
and continue to
crucify us.

as we walk
through our own
via dolorosa
with crosses
of guilt
on backs that bleed
love.

lashes of hatred.

thorned crown of fear.

they call us the apocalypse.

they speak for you.
ripping scripture
into shreds of
ignorance.

use your name
to condemn.

forgetting
with ease
that you
are
simply
and
powerfully
Love incarnate.
