Judgment


Lent 3 - Year C 

Judgment

Procrustes 
a fundamentalist’s saint
fit everyone
to a misfitting bed
stretching
cutting

misfortune
brings out latter-day
Procrusteans
judging suffering
blaming
excusing

profit
leads originalist
Procrusteans
demanding return
outsourcing
minimizing

imagine
a meeting between
Procrustes
and Narcissus
sons of water gods
never satisfied
forever satisfied

reflect
on your desire
for others
to be you
eternal change
eternal stasis
