Enemy: a Poem

Enemy, my Enemy

Your face is red, it seems

Your body has more heat

Than it can handle

Here, let me help you

Repay you a kindness

For evil you’ve done unto me

As Christ would have me do

He bade us show love

Where hatred was given

Rival! O, my Rival!

Your tribute to me,

warm and true

Allow that I should free you

From this curse

Of excessive heat

There, now, a slash

Across your throat

Behold, you’re free!

An act of love

A blessing of

Our rivalry!

I bathe in blood so crimson

To cool you off

A sacrament

A tribute to you

My Enemy
