closet racist perhaps.
You wore track marks like stigmata
as though needles piercing your flesh
could somehow transmute the sins
enacted on your body
and your muscles pull me deep inside you,
reminding me that resurrection comes
not from iron nails and battered bodies,
but from the pungent warmth
of rich soil and rotting leaves
where dry seeds sprout
and grow toward the sun.
