Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

scapegoat

August 1, 2010

(HT to Russell Rathbun and his gripping tale of a golem in Midrash on the Juanitos (and an arresting reading of that chapter here), and to my CT peeps for a stirring study/meditation on Luke 11.)

intoxicated by accusation
I’ve been sneering at Beelzebub
so long I can’t remember
free-flowing blame

delicious catharsis
blood on my lips
hands in a fist

Now this man from Galilee
has killed my buzz
stolen my joy
left me bereft of blame
walking back toward town

to wrestle my own self to the ground
