That Jesus Moment

 

Leaking contrition, you enlist the pain of histories

for one unremarkable error:

Say sorry and mean it

*

There’s a right and a wrong way (funny, now that’s clear)

No drawing up the silk in seamless twists

On yourself to reflect the innocent’s sting

*

Yes, unravel the doom but not alone, alone is crude,

exludes an accomplice to smile as they hand you the sponge

to wipe your dirt from their person

*

Denies the gift of grace wrapped in dead skin

The absolving absolution

That Jesus Moment

*

At all costs to avoid the deep blue sea of double injury

Whereby one hurts AND laughs

and never learns

*

So I’ll meet your play, I’ll take a rake

to the past’s stone surface,

in stereo atonement

*

Its legacy to heed the ego’s violating force

Apology’s first service to shine a light Divine

on the Not Conscious.

*
