The Sun Rises Easterly


He wakes

He gets up

Relief abounds

Outside the fleshy rabbit bounces

The egg, comedic, rolls like stone

Away from an opened tomb

That had been keeping the better things inside


He is awake

Marys there

Ready now to tell a doubting world

That it’s over, now

And everything’s beginning
