Bloody Mary (Easter: Series 4th)

Not
the drink unless, the drink poured
out for the forgiveness of many. Reason seen
was school for the performing arts church family's
church-in-the-round annual passion played on public stage

Much
south of Mason & Dixon. A city
center wide eyed child clutched my wife's arm
tight beside while some time passed till the southern
accents of the crucifying Roman guards passed noticing in the

Realism
of the crucifixion portrayed with
solid spike pounding sounds the tall cross occupied
was propped high then dropped into place with wooden
thud to the heart. He died. Others lowered the body limp with

Cloth
of bolt festooned and placed Him
in Mother Mary's arms held to her sobbing breast
briefly when taken away, the vision never thought, shocked
me of Mary in pure white dress stained on cheek, hand and bosom

Dark
soaked blood red, mixing
with tears of grief that no cleaning
would remove from the mantle of my soul. Some
visions do not depart nor render undone the changes of heart.
