Now what?
Start
dating,
isn't it time you settled down?
You look thin,
Have some soup.

Don't you like my soup?
I hope you're wearing a

Call your mother.
She doesn't want to
die without
grandchildren.

Jesus, We're Coming Home

Group of Jews in Christian camp
Rented for weekend
    mountains
    snow
In stone amphitheater
crucifix embossed on
cold stage ground
    Jesus,
    are you buried
    here too?
Remember Jerusalem
Church of Holy Sepulchre
True burial place?
Jesus has network of
underground tunnels
Can rise anywhere he wants
    Not that we believe
    that sort of thing.

      The Christian caretakers
      are so hospitable they'd
      convert if we asked them

Christian Steve shovels
dirt and snow
cleaning the way as if
we're the second coming

      Christian Steve communicates with
      others via walkie talkie
          "Steve,
          come in.
          This is Jesus,
          Your Savior,
          breaker breaker."
          Yes Lord,
          This is Steve"
          "We need more Mr. Pibb
          in the dining hall" says Jesus
          "I'm on my way
          oh Heavenly Master."

Steve has passed the shoveling off
to a Jewish volunteer.
The Jew sings
    "Workin' all night
    master's got me shovelin'
    ARGH!"
We are Jews
in a Christian camp
singing Negro spirituals
like Pirates.
One world, one people.

      At the Christian camp
      there is an unlimited refill soda bar.
      Clearly, they are
      not Buddhists.

We post Israeli flags along
the Christian camp entry road.
It doesn't matter.
Come Sunday we'll have to
withdraw from this land too.
