CALVARY

“Die before you die…”

we each of us die
at Calvary
no matter what our dream
the flesh of a lover
the laughter of children
the beauty of the sun
we end here, upon the hill
crying out to our God

each of us faces that moment
naked
swathed in memories

each of us weeps tears
in Gethsemane
among the olives
if we do not
we have lived in vain

take joy in that

scatter my ashes
bury them deep
forget my name
let them lie
in the earth

til they grow
til they grow
