SWELTERING MESSIAH
(6/14/18)

there's
something
about standing
out
in the heat

the punishing
sun

suffering
from our own
streaming
sweat

benefitting little
from a breeze
that seems
blown
from a furnace

that feels
almost holy

we can
understand
how someone
found in the desert
seemingly oblivious
to the oblivion
might seem
a higher form
of life

blessed
in some form
or fashion

a dry
robe

a smile

create quite
an impression
in the
wastelands
