Salome Requesting the Head of John the Baptist on a Plate

The Voice Calling in the Wilderness
Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord
etc.

It’s remarkable
The Voice is the Word
We don’t see him
so his body never existed

So what exactly is her crime ?

What I really mean to get at with all of this:

is that it is so easy
for the life force

to leave a body

You just ask for it
& it happens
