Thinking Outside the Box

We’re too close to death to take it seriously

the membrane between this side and that side of the earth

is as thin as a window pane

we take funerals for granted

like we know we’re all supposed to be there

including the one in the box

so we accept violence on television

and murder as a noun and a verb

and war

and the image of Christ on the cross

is at the core of every church

though the ascendency to heaven

and the resurrection

are images left to the imagination.
