Two Poems By Steve Lang

The maimed

I sat at his feet that day,
On the mountain,
When he wiped away my tears,
And the vast throng wondered
At the miracle 
Of my new-found integrity;
But while the fish and the bread were doled out,
I wondered how long 
I could make it last. 
The foolish man

And the rain came, 
And the floods fell,
And the foolish man 
Was bound with cords,
And with due process
Impaled upon
The upturned horns 
Of the altar.
