Us and Christ

 

It’s Trump to blame.

No:

the antivaxxers.

No: Putin,

whites,

Christians,

men

and boyfriend.

They’re to blame.

Or maybe the Jews,

blacks,

Marxists and maskers,

women

and girlfriend.

Maybe they’re to blame.

 

Always the other.

Always the other.

Always the other

but you

and I.

 

Us

in the quiet despair

by cracks of relief:

it’s us to blame.

 

Not us

in the sense of us and them

 

but us

in the sense of us and Christ.

 

Do we carry the weight of our cross?

Do we bear the load?

Who’s fault but ours?

 

God knows

that deep within

we understand.

 

Those final moments just before we sleep,

those first few moments of waking up:

it’s there.

 

Deep within,

we understand

don’t we?
