How many times does the lamb die? How many
Times do you dismiss that your calculation
Will make a change? Perhaps you don’t think any.
It may be that you risk humiliation
Because you think a shekel more or less
Is like the rough, lost greeting of a kiss:
So what. You never thought it would be terror.
You never thought his goodness was in error.
So why? You can’t explain it to yourself.
In the end, the heaviness of your betrayal
Is all you think about; hangs on the wall.
You move from non-belief to your belief
The way that others pin their character
On ruin, then look up. The tears are pure.
