wits, my brain has left me and i cannot
wrap my lips around the words
to ask if he’s asking what i think-
if i could think
that he is asking,
or if he’s telling what i think
if i could
that he is telling.
and i am split down the center
as the fog parts to make way for the rain.
and now nightfall
and no one can see because there
is no light.
Bold Judas marches forth and kisses
the girl on the cheek.
We guards descend, picking her up
and taking her away: this is the one.
This is the one who dares
in the morning she finds cloudy skies
painted on thighs, and wetness.
flood after thaw.
We took her
in and when she woke, she cried.
We took her in.
And she cried. We took it
upon ourselves to help her
understand the error of her
If she had not flaunted
it before us, we would have
never taken it.
She should have never challenged
The morning the girl woke, she returned home
with videos and pictures of Judas
in every hand of every passerby:
evidence, but not only evidence
And it got buried, so she dug it out.
And it got swept away, so she anchored it.
The media began to sing and some sang
that she was the hunter and others said
she was the prey.
Magdalene wants to pretend she's not a whore,
but we have video evidence.
We didn't have to choose her, she asked
us to choose her.
She challenged Caesar.
We had our pick of the litter
and we chose the one that bites.
your honor, i could have sailed and sipped
of any sea, and they would have found me.
they are waves of the same water
I am a boat to be devoured.
all women are devoured with me
we all float in the same sea.
The Gods took Judas and the Guards
but they did not take Caesar.
Huge thanks to for the feature! Also, as many of you pointed out, there was a minor typo. Thank you for bringing it to my attention, it's been fixed! I will try to thank everyone for their comments and favorites. Have a great day everyone, and thank you for your comments, discussion, and support!
Good job on your writing.
A very challenging piece--not to read, but the content works so well to a powerful conclusion--the challenge is past, but still here.
I enjoyed every word of this and congratulate you on the DD!
(There's one typo if you want to fix it: "We had our pick of the lit[t]er...." The second 't' is missing, imo.)
- Congrats on the DD!
Have a nice day!
The capitalization seems to be a tad inconsistent, but otherwise, this is just one of the best things I've read lately.
Thanks for the love, Fuzz
