SAVIOUR SONG

Date Written: September 13, 2017

      Out of the wind he came, like one who'd come from the water's womb; alone
      & bleeding he lay, like one who'd wandered into doom. Breaking a crust of
      bread as if hope were all a Christian lay, he took his boat of fishes &
      did not turn away. Out of the sun he stormed, like one who'd come from a
      baptised dawn; alone & bleeding he raved, like one who'd risen from an
      ashen grave. Sharing a goblet of scarlet wine, as if he were born to save
      the day, he took his boat of fishes & did not turn away. & now in shrouds
      he lies, & now in tombs of doubt, he wails: through swollen, tearless
      eyes, his past contests his raging Grail, & people laugh as he lies still,
      & people laugh as he bites dust: a saviour in the midst of a thrill:
      society's symbol of righteousness.
