Eastergram - Steve Turner

Calvary is a rubbish tip close by,
not a green hill far away.

That is the stench of rotting dogs,
not the waft of holy oil.

The cross is stubbed and splintered,
not elegant and planed
as if in a Florentine fresco.

Imagine that helmet a mask.
Imagine that sandal a boot.
Imagine that spear a gun.

Imagine this crowd
not contorting itself in grief
  but holding up its phones
to share Easter with the world;
proving it was there
by watching it on screen.

What happens next
will amaze you
