Here we are opposite Adam,
with Christ’s birth in the center,
in the nexus of human time.

Three learned men followed a star
seeking out a King foretold by prophecy,
not a conqueror, but a prince of peace.

A child in the line of King David
born by a maiden given to the temple
kept chaste in the house of elderly Joseph.

God, seen by human eyes
touched by mortal hands
healed, fed, and blessed in return.

This Holy day is not about Santa Claus
a fiction built on consumerist greed
but about that center in time.

Saint Nicholas of Mira would grieve
if he knew of the effort men have made
to turned away from the truth.

The shoeless Bishop would weep
at Black Fridays and shopping mobs
all in the name of avarice.

Look into an infant’s face
and you will see God
unpolluted by learned sin.

Here we are opposite Adam
with Christ at the center,
are you ready to see the other end?
