even this

and is it possible

even on Easter

even on the day

when all things began

being made new

is it possible that

even on this day of days

i could with one breath

bless God and with

the next curse humanity?

o, my God, what is it

in me that responds

this way? what pride

is it that makes me

play queen, play king

play god?

how quickly do i forget

my death — and the power

of Your resurrection

(yet You raise me once more

from the dust —

and is even this possible?)
