Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Crucifixion; Jesus Christ - Crucifixion


All day the world's mad mocking strife,
The venomed prick of probing knife,
The baleful, subtle leer of scorn
That rims the world from morn to morn,
While reptile-visions writhe and creep
Into the very arms of sleep
To quench the fitful burnished gleams:
A crucifixion in my dreams!
