The Invitation: A Prayer of Thanks

On a rugged post,

carved from the tree

just down the way,

a many-splendored and

many-labeled man

bore many accusations

of the elite supposed to

have had in order the affairs

of his father’s house.

With arms stretched wide,

feet stacked and pinned,

and breath refusing to help,

he died extending the invitation

for everyone else to die, too,

including each accuser.

For this, I can only say:

Thanks be to God.
