I walk through the abandoned house,

kick at the fallen plaster.

I find a Bible and open it.

The floor collapses.


I fall into the cellar.

Nails pierce my hands and feet.

A woman wearing

a crown of twelve stars


cradles me in her arms.

I look into her deep eyes.

She kisses my hands.

She washes my feet with her tears.
