a red letter day

after the dinner 
during the debate
words were spelled in blood
by sharpened quills as  
broken wedding jars 
spilled carmine wine 
holy water flowed across the table
he said
the blood is liquified
the spirit is a gas
the body is solidified

petros with a two-edged tongue 
licked the ear of a demon's servant
he said
the rolling stone gathers no prints
habeas corpus christie

from a latin wilderness 
the word was shouted
in blots of scarlet ink by
markos with a feathered-edged calamus 
thrust his opinion into yeshua's side
but he always minds as he tries
to dot his tees and cross his eyes
he said
the logos is plasmatically
problematic
