Suddenly A Memory

     Don’t you miss the world?
This was the question that
Swirled inside the sepulcher
Rushing into his dead ears
Pumping against the ridges of his cold brain
Like a paramedic performing CPR
Insistent, asking, over and over again.
     Don’t you miss the world?
This was the question that
Swore not to yield until it was heard.
Then suddenly a memory ticked,
One faint with sepia tones of
The sea and the sound of
The laughter of men.
     Don’t you miss the world?
And slowly the mind of Christ
Resurrected his first old word – yes.
