corpus christi

my Jesus was crucified on a tree of slut shaming and double standards

his arms were held to the beams with nails of sexual abuse and gendered oppression.

his feet were nailed with catcalls and derogatory slang

and the hammer was an untested rape kit

this androcentric tomb has kept me in my burial clothes

but i have to believe that Christ will rise

and shatter this glass ceiling
