4-6-14 “untitled”

I watched Jesus
digging through the trash
his cross
a filthy worn Carhartt jacket
his mane was dingy
his hands sticky & dirty
where the stigmata ought be
I prayed for him
the lonesome bottles and cans rustled
as he sifted through them
looking for enough recyclables
to fill the knife wound of hunger in his side
the passers by ignored him
as passers by do

The King of Kings
saviour of men
unassuming & starving

“God so loved the World”
he gave us his many children to care for
shameful
is our greedy hearts
that we leave them hanging on their crosses
ready to die…
