Go Now (But Do It Quietly- In Thirteen Lines) by Mathis Wilde Radke

no savior are you now
or have you been at any juncture
so off you go now with your two by fours…
up upon that hillside we’ll call your calgary
go hang alone,
like the two thieves who flanked him
mourn, but do it quietly,
on the darkened dawn of the mountain
the world has to get on with its mornings
and don’t idle about with swollen sockets
on your two marys
somehow you found some way
to let yours be forsaken
