The One About Pontius Pilate’s wife

Claudia had
a terrible dream

On a day with an
itchy red sky,
gargoyle eyes,

writhing on her
perfumed bed,

She dreams truth
and tells her husband,

stay away
from righteous Jesus

The Church makes
her a saint
for her gloom

In paintings
she hovers
miserably
and whispers
in his ear,

a game of telephone
in the Life of Christ
