Jesus and Batman by Jonathan Sanyer

I wonder if Jesus appears to men who have affairs

I wonder if they realize that it’s his fault and not theirs

I wonder if he came that night
we sat awake on the stairs

I wonder if he could taste
my mother’s tears

and if superheroes fight for kids
the way child services fights for kids

I wonder if Batman could hold families together
with the same strength that my mother did

I wonder if babies have healing powers
when the world is shit

and when they shit themselves
there is always enough love to change them

and give them a chance to do it again.
