She

And then, at the apex of the mountain She disrobed and stood tall on the altar. “Love is the only religion in this world. Hatred is the only sin”. And in shock the holy men fainted. In shock the woman applauded. In shock the money men denounced Her as a demon, as a daughter of Nero. And in shock I stood there, closest to Her because I always preferred a front row to any activity. And I saw her, in all Her spectacular defiance of what we called order. This was an omen that never escaped my mind. Even when the authorities tried to restrain Her. We made eye contact as She gracefully evaded the police. And in that moment I knew all of love and commitment.
