Temptation

“Jesus was led up by the spirit
into the wilderness to be tempted.”
Matthew 4: 1

after 40 abstained days
I am famished but lucid

I am approached and offered

stone -
a loaf of perishable bread

resurrection -
self-betrayal

kingdom come -
nothing but numbered years


after 40 fasted days
I ascend incorruptible - yeast not -

ready toward the pin-hole of splendor
