day 114

but he said to him, "Judas, is it with a kiss that you are betraying the Son of Man?"  Luke 22:48

we betray you
      not with a kiss,
   but in the people
   we kick to the side
            of life;
      not with a sword,
   but with the sneer
   we offer to
            the hopeful;
      not with a word
   but in the silence
   uttered to
            injustice.
