He Has Risen

Venus in retrograde

returning lost loves,

goddess’ cruel joke.

This undead ex-husband,

Jesus-looking,

beautiful man with a black heart.

Lazarus in my life,

resurrected

from New Jersey ash and oil refineries,

how can he rise up?

How can he come again,

searching for me in the desert,

forty days gone by?

Let him lie back down

if he is tired.

I have no time for such a man.
