Responding to a Sadducee

Resurrection
is not “a conjuring trick with bones,”*
nor is the resurrection
a reality-tv show about the life
of seven brothers and their
unnamed widow-sister-wife
Resurrection is not undone
by the cynicism of the resurrected one
blinking, bewildered in the sun,
wondering with trepidation
exactly what it is that has just begun.
