Mary Magdalene's Mug - Poem by Chidi Anthony Opara

I watched him
Dip his forefinger
Inside Mary Magdalene's mug,
His forefinger
Soaked in her juice.
I saw him dropp a seed
Inside Mary Magdalene's mug,
I watched the supper
After the last supper,
I smelt
The sweet smell of that supper.
I saw Mary Magdalene
And the seed
In the remote region,
I heard them
Declare him seedless.
I hear questions,
I see discomfort
On the face of dishonesty.
