the 21st century, in retrospect

or the children sleeping underwater
or the ones dug up
beneath the brilliant december sun

this woman who writes to tell me
i’ve gotten it all wrong

five below zero but she insists on
equating light with warmth

she insists the truth be replaced with
3D pictures of christ in the
garden at gethsemane

has nothing but praise for the pilot
even as the plane
crashes into the mountain
