Golgotha Days

The giant
Cactus bristled
Against the sky,
As they cried
img_1059_golgotha_days_400For mercy;
A mercy
Weighed
Down by
Their grief
And disbelief.

That echoed
Like cacophonous
Sounds in a
Subterranean
Cave,trembling
Drops falling.

Reverberating
Crystal drops
In a coral cave
Among stalagmites
And stalactites
Like the open
Jaw of a
Tiger.

Poised,
Pouncing,
Pounded by
The orange
Sky that melted
On green cacti
Spikes like a
Thousand
Crucifixions
That bled
Like martyrs
Under a
Golgotha sky.

They yelled and
Cried for mercy
Weighed down by
Their own grief
And disbelief.

Their acid
Communion
Wafers swirling
In their veins.

As the clouds
Scudded low
Over the canyon;
Their souls whistling
Through ravines past
Scorpions,geckos
and the rattling
Of the snakes curled
On warm red-orange
Boulders etched with
Spiral green algae.

The giant
Cactus bristling
Against the sky
As they sighed;
They paid the price
And headed for
The city to punch
The clock,and catch
The train,and start
The pain again.

In their glass
Cement and steel
Golgotha days
