For a Brooklyn Jew, On What To Do On Easter

Build a cabin out of lox
out of time as Easter paradox
passes by and Catholic school boys
get all worked up, playing with Roman toys–

the cup, the cross, the body and the blood–
bacon curse to the Talmud
and the long-haired Hasidim rockstars
in the subway cars
and Fords Taurus…

Find that egg! Crack that keg and celebrate:

look at it this way–

you could be gay

then what would God say?
