Excerpt

Burnt Offerings

Do you want to stone me
because I might be
a heretic
or an agnostic
to your faith?
Maybe you should just
crucify me,
splay me,
tie my limbs
and nail me
with old rusted
spikes
upon an intersection
of fact and fantasy.
Will you do this
for my redemption?

I’m not worthy
hang me
upside down
let the blood rush
to my head
then
you can cut me down
chop me up
piecemeal
feast on my body
drink my blood.
Take what is left
of my remains
burn them
in a sacrificial flame
scatter the ashes
in the wind
or
place them
in your chalice
keep them in your private
catacombs.

And then you can try
to resurrect me
drown me
in your holy water
a baptism
to make me
a martyr
for your
salvation.
