He comes out against hate

I’ve come within range of hate.

Terrifying, its tremors,

its dizzying obsessions.

Hate’s like a swordfish

invisible in the water,

knifing suddenly into sight

with blood on its blade—

clear water misleads you.

Why, why do we hate so much

those who hate us?

There they are underwater,

hunters lying in wait,

swords and oilcans ready,

spiderwebs and mousetraps.

It has nothing to do with being Christian,

or with prayer or with tailoring;

it’s just that hate is a loser.

Scales fell from eyes

in the poison market;

meanwhile the sun comes out

and I start to work

and to buy bread and wine.
