Nic Stringer – Caiaphas

CAIAPHAS

November 1990, workers find a limestone box
while paving a road in the Peace Forest,
South of Jerusalem. Human remains frame
a legend, chip-carved Aramaic longhand –
remains like the graffiti of the industrial zones
and the nightclubs beside the Peace Forest,
South of Jerusalem. The Searcher, convenient,
practical in a bone box across the Hypocrites’
path, risen to the surface and illuminated
by the sweat of men, who see with His skin,
push and swirl through one another, bleed
for the Peace Forest, South of Jerusalem.

From A day that you happen to know, first published by Guillemot Press 2017
