Poem: Fiction Never Lies

By: Reese Scott
jesus aligned
himself with
the autistic,
the slow
and retarded
they followed
jumping up
and down
till there ankles
would brake
jumping off hills
and mountain

jesus had a good sense of humor
and made sure
all notes were
taken by the ones who weren’t
able to write
and had sex with the ones
who could not speak
these were his real
because they made
him laugh
as it echoed
to the children
lying below
the mountain
the ones who
counted the days until
they would not
be resurrected
