Reject the Numbness, II


And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.
-Mark 15:23

Why did you refuse their mercy?

Without it, the impact of nail through
drove undeadened into the brain.

The agony of gravity
reverberated undampened
against the ears.

How thoughtless of you Jesus,
to make the moment more difficult for them.
