Did Historical Christ Exist?

everest jesus icarus





by now, does it matter
time and myth have done their work,
hope anoints

trying to get to the bottom of it would be like chipping Everest
with a balsa chisel and rubber mallet down to a grain of sand
or explaining to Icarus the practicality of an altimeter
—by the time you got anywhere
it’d be a moot point

all that’s left is faith
which is delicate
and shatters
