Surfer of the Unspoken Secret

The last
temptation
of Christ,
the one he
gave in to.

He promised
her sainthood
& then
rose into
the sky.

She tried
to follow
but plunged
into a
river of
menstrual blood.

A street
corner afterlife.

The sly
way he
watched life
pass by.
He knew
there was
more to
come.

Surfer
of the
unspoken secret,
riding the
perfect wave.
