an answer
life wasted crawling towards water beneath the
sky blue sky and these
last days of winter and this taste of dirty frost

this 10 below zero this neverending wind and all of
the furniture from
the burned house spread out on the lawn

jesus in his unmarked grave
dreaming lightning bolts

understands the kingdom of god is a
fairy tale for suckers and fools

knows in his endlessly dying heart that a man who
wants for nothing is a man who can never be trusted

  1. According to the New Testament, God raised Jesus from the dead" after his crucifixion; he ascended to heaven, to the "right hand of God", and will return again to fulfill the rest of Messianic prophecy such as the resurrection of the dead, the Last Judgment, and the establishment of the Kingdom of God. His resurrection is the guarantee that all the Christian dead will be resurrected at Christ's second coming. The 1st Christian manuscripts were written between 50-57 by St. Paul; his 1st Epistle to the Corinthians (15: 3-8) 3] declared "that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers and sisters at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me."
