The Hidden Crucifixion


The hidden crucifixion

Not the one high on the hill

Not the one gazed upon at The Met

The one quietly gathering steam

While photos show such domestic peace

Surprise surprise

Jack-in-the-box

Happy Meal

Christ screams

The duvet is torn

The sheer overlay crumpled up

Thrown on the floor

Apartment for rent?

Property taxes need to be paid

A quick coat of paint

Put up the sign

Place it in the window

Someone looking is bound to walk by
