“ I can see people, but they look like trees walking.” —Gospel of Mark
Trees with one leg, walking,spit of Jesus on his eyes,arms pointing up to a high dazzleas all around him a crowdof sound is becoming visible.What once was a small rumbleon the tips of his fingers, nowpours into him like a river,a drenching of light and shadow.He trembles on this new threshold.Is he man or tree? And did the Healeralso touch the crown of leaveswhich now looks back at himwith a thousand eyes?
