apologies at Juno’s altar


does the white dove
misunderstand?

this shame
is not hers
but his
he who brutalizes
the innocent
innocence itself
in the name of
for the sake of
atonement, sacrifice,
a moment’s sensual
thoughtless satiety

thus is sin
multiplied
judgement belied
justice denied

and now what
atonement?
