On Liberation and Possession: A Poem

consistently and fraudulently
no matter the method
of their movement
or cadence 
of their message
but the demons
to the contrary 
take residence
in those who
will not 
choose not
to recognize 
our common humanity
mutual liberation 
in the words and works
of freedom fighters 
fueled by the fire 
of a Great Love*

On Mark 1:21-28;
📸 taken on pilgrimage in Capernaum

*line inspired by Julia Esquivel, “I Am Not Possessed.”
