Jesus’ Fish Hooks

Dead center
hanging
dangling from fish-hooks
Jesus has pierced
through each armpit

peeled

every day is
discriminating

a fruitful woman faces me
“those hips couldn’t possibly bear children”

an eager man braces my  backside
rests on me
cheek to cheek

men and women
all varieties
surround my languished
flaw

each taking turn
weapon of choice in
claw

seeking destruction

secretly wishing Jesus
had
chosen them.
