Pentecost, at what price?

Sacred tongues

heard once a year

50 days after the death

of the one that we mourn

these two thousand years.

Were you drunk at

such an early hour,

or was it a spirit

of another kind that

inebriated your soul?

In the years that have passed

since that first time

what words have been spoken,

and written that have

interpreted that moment?

The dishonest lies,

and fabricated truths

that have permeated

the cloth of what you call veracity

in the name of the lord,

in the name of a man

that was killed

and, is claimed, rose

to fill your insecurity and void.
