Millamant on Christ

” . . . let us be very strange and well bred. . . .”

A thrill is never warm.
Cold is crucial to reverence.
Christalization of God, the Star of Bethlehem is a snowflake.
He dissolves on the evangelistic tongues of the profane.
He melts into the common waters as the people warm to him.
At last he will run out the gutters of the world.
Keep him at a respectful distance.
Only the Devil should have familiars.

–January 16, 1994

(“Millamant on Christ” was published in the Fall 2001 issue of Nightsun, Frostburg State University MD.)
