What are the Holy Scriptures?
A dragon holding us. Just outside our skin she surrounds, her scales hover: the body of Earth within her. The underside of her skin today is blue.
What is the Old Testament?
A trochee rhythm with refrain.
What is the New Testament?
The bow in the sky. The key. A singularity. All the power faded into light.
What is the Apocrypha?
Nebulizers, crayons, O2 tubing, forearm splints, ace wraps, butterfly wraps.
Why do we call the Holy Scriptures the Word of God?
Because we need a new umbrella.
How do we understand the meaning of the Bible?
As a house with windows like cats’ eyes.
