(Arlington, Virginia)

The Auction

The dark, dismal sky belched bilious clouds
of navy and black that hovered over the
crucifixion cross marked "King of the Jews."
Howling winds screeched gossipy gasps...sulking...
Howling again as if bowing to curtain calls.

Demonic dice were cast
drunken men rolled
and Mary cried softly.
