Jesus is not an icon

Jesus is not an icon
Of repressed purity,
A perfect butterfly

Officially pinned in position,
Secured beneath museum glass,
For the safety

Of the onlooker.

Jesus is a tumbling schoolboy:
He makes mud pies.

The mud
Flicks a feather
And flies.

Jesus is much younger
Than an icon.
And less fixed
By paint and pins.

Jesus is performing healing miracles through Torbi el Mekki in Morocco
