Heretic

He brings down
the hammer on the ceramic figure
on the cross.
“This Christ
upsets me,”
the orphan hisses,
whose father & mother,
& sisters & brothers,
& all his kinsmen
were murdered
by the vigilantes
in his old, forgotten town.
The priest stands still,
unable to find
the proper words.
“Enough suffering!”
He shouts madly
as he vanishes
into the trees.
