WAITING FOR THE RAPTURE
by Kirby Olson

A N E W B O D Y

I could have been a pair of shoes until I saw my hands.
I could have been a tree until I saw my feet.
I could have been a river until I saw myself laugh.
I could have been a car until I saw that I could walk.
I could have been a human being until I saw my eyes.

CHRIST IS RISEN!

My boy works clay
while each doubting Thomas
is astonished.
Could the risen Lord walk amongst us?
Lola returns from the bathroom
to make a blue flower out of Play-Doh.

1st Corinthians 15:
He appears to Caiaphas
& the 12,
to 500 brethren &
James the Apostle,
& also to Paul.

Witnesses to the Resurrection…
do I believe this?
A crack in the wall of death,
a way to go home, home—
so that we may be imperishable

together.
