Calvery

God knows Im not religious but, as the decades pass, and the once blazing sun of the wise and venerable suffer on the Crucifix Their brittle bones are as fragile as their gossamer swathed cognizance. Those beloved by them become a mystery. The past is there as unrecalled history; and is viewed as one sees of defunct memories from the life over which they had once presided. Living in the waiting room of Death in that strange place they watch Reality diminish and consciously pray that soon they can say, like Christ, It is finished.

KAREN R. SPRINGER
Shame

We spoke yesterday and the sonority of his voice was like a tuning fork striking my very core. Its vibration shaking my viscera, disturbing that which I thought was dry and done with any dark, urgent need for greedy satisfaction. But it was there and I should have smeared my forehead with ashes, hung my head and walked barefoot like a penitent through the streets of my psyche. Fat chance, for even the memory feels too fine. For what has been, has been and what will be, I may still, once again, celebrate as mine because I cannot feel shame.
