Christ rises in us
and stands in our circle
aside our smoking backyard barbecue.

With a wave and a shout,
he greets our strolling neighbors,
"Happy Easter."

We continue our twenty-four hour toast to resurrection,
as, with us, he raises his brown glass bottle of beer.

will be hungover.
"No lo hace,"
he will say,
"remember our hangover
the day after Cana?"
