Give me something real
for we are broken and breaking still
and Oprah and Phil
and all the President's men
can't begin to heal us again.

The dead cannot resurrect themselves -
a curse! a curse!
for it is the One Necessary Thing!

(Praise be to the God of my salvation
who, though he shared his bread with sinners,
also beat the dust with angels.
He alone among the humans
could live and die and live again -
one resurrection
to drag us all
out of the dirt
and into the ever-glory
of the rising Son.)
