Disputation and Recourse

Good Friday Disputation

His blood mixed with gravel
cried out for vindication.
But didn’t he say the rocks would sing
even if his family wouldn’t?

Easter’s Recourse

Funny how the blood gravel, rock tomb,
sealed and guarded by flint-faced thugs,
are reversed in a verse
“he is not here”
And uncut stones break out in songs
about the gift of depetrification.
