      JUNE 2003 POEM OF THE MONTH:

      BY STEVE KILBEY, POET & LYRICIST FOR THE BAND THE CHURCH

      Untitled

      the nazarene with opaque blue eyes
      looks up from the dust and road
      off into the desert
      locks you into his gaze
      merciful sad
      the sky as it darkens and thunder
      rumbles down from the hills
      this beautiful man
      wait patiently as time
      limps and
      hobbles and
      crawls
      minutes and months
      vultures swirl
      the sky again
      calls in cracked dry voices
      menu of corrupted flesh
      decay a la carte
      moths breeding in cupboards
      serpents taste the air
      oblivious to almost everything
      so many things left undone
      events banking up
      spilling over
      the edge of the frame
      apostles surround you
      expectant confusion
      and disarray
      peter thickset and suspicious
      overprotective of his master
      a bad tempered dog
      john slim and handsome
      matthew still trying to fit in
      iscariot a nebulous blur
      on the outskirts
