Poems for Jesus: #1

Like a sheet of plate glass before the hurled stone, I pray to be


Surely pain births an unnatural child

An antithesis of being, a damning delivery

A doorway to abyss

On its threshold you ask

with no horror in your voice

inhuman and humane

terribly you ask

oh terribly

that I should will sole and heel across that bar

propel soul into silence utterly

that I might be found by you

and in you be found
