Occupy Temple

Occupy Temple

Jesus, you really did it this time
didn’t you?  You let your dark anger seep
through the pores of your glowing skin

you who flings all gates right off their hinges
granting access to fatherly and motherly divine love
that swims through every cubic inch of air

you turned and tripped and toppled tables
and scattered coins and freed temple doves
and I bet you yelled in a gruff croak:

stop locking up the holy in a box
in a temple in a creedal subscription in a poll tax
and let the holy flow uncontrolled like Ezekiel’s river
