The Scream

In Qana where once Jesus
turned the water to wine,
he now turns it into blood

with the help of his modern disciples.
A rescuer hands half a child
to another rescuer

as a photographer snaps a picture,
the shoulders and head of the child
blown to heaven, perhaps.

Maybe God didn’t need
the whole child yet---
he works in mysterious ways, you know.
