NAPOWRIMO 2018 poetry - mostly mental health, religion, and family, with a little sprinkle of fandom.
Chapter 1, Easter's Fool (4/01)
In the midst of pastel wonder
And dizzy heat,
And prayer-garden azaleas,
I wish I could say
“I am listening, speak.”
What I say instead is
“Shut up no please”
“Not that again, not that one”
“It is only a little cup, but let it pass from me.”
My king, he sucked in breath again this morning,
On a slab of stone -
And played the greatest joke the world has known
In the teeth of the Devil’s laughter.
My devil, she’s still laughing.
Is this Sunday, or Gethsemane?
Shake loose my winding-cloths
And let my heart Spring forth for thee.
