July 2005 / Volume Six / Issue Four
Jason Floyd Williams

They heard the story of Lazarus
while in the womb, so
when their dog– the one
their father had shot to teach
them a lesson in
ownership & responsibility–
had de-thawed from its
winter death & arose
to greet them & Spring
w/ half its skull exposed,
brain smiling w/ new activity:
They cheered for Jesus!

The father led the dog
away from the children &
gave it another bullet
and a deeper grave.
