Neanderthal Messiah — 48

Silk Road (Iran) I

A Chadian Adonis, Musa,

Guards a makeshift

Smoke tent — burning within

Manganese and frankincense.

Animals shooed out into the fresh air

Reinvigorated.

Emerging is a 12 year old, spitting on

His hand to plunge into a heifer’s anus: ‘Twins! Mazel tov!’

[Musa smiles recalling a run over the backs of his in-laws’ herd.]
