Violence of Saints

As the violence of the spoken word becomes the useless norm, civilization resorts to physical violence.

Fists… Restraints… Weapons… Jail…

A violent husband…

An aggressive mother… Murderous sons… Raving priests…

… and the violence of the saints.

    1. The philosopher in me is tempted to define the terms, but the poet in me would slap me hard for trying. Instead, I propose that you read it and hold the reverberations of the term, letting them take their course inside you, without holding them with a definitive definition. 😉
