Of Woman Bondage

a woman jogging in a park;
smell of sweat mingled with
smell of perfume bought in a dollar store.
(i don’t have a nose for perfume though)
a woman with thick make-up
who’s just given birth to a baby.
(a rumor, but it might be true)
a feminist woman waiting for a man
to open the door for her.
actresses in a TV show
who can’t be told who’s who.
(i don’t have good eyes though)
my wife sleeping by me
is the only woman with bare face?
(only if wife is a woman too)

of woman bondage that brings back
the memories of lust to men
with fake face and the make-up
as thick as pig skin

A Pink-Colored Sacrament of Reconciliation (Luke 7:36-50)

Wetting man’s soiled feet with her white tears
Wiping his feet with her brownish streaming long hair
Cutting out the stench of the polluted earth from those feet
Dousing the feet with passionate kiss
Papering the feet with woman’s scent
Pouring the luxury ointment on the feet
Thus making his feet king’s feet
What kind of woman can make this kind of erotic confession of love?
What kind of man can’t take this kind of sensual confession of love?
Any men let alone Messiah can’t forgive any sins of any women?

In this sizzling scene men grumble not because
She is a whore not because
She is a big sinner decorated with quite a few adulteries not because
The man is the Son of God but because
they are hungry males who is jealous of another male
who got extraordinary love which they never get
from the woman as beautiful as a Miss Universe

My woman
She is not as beautiful as even a Miss Atlanta
She has money barely enough to buy cheap perfume
She doesn’t have a courage to make a sexy confession of love in public
Ah! However,
The look of her sparkling eyes and
her body language are
enough to trigger other males’ jealousy
I don’t envy the Son of God at all

A Lavish Expression of Love [John 12,1-8] 

A woman in Bethany called Mary

Poured heartily an expensive pure nard perfume
On the filthy feet of a man who’s going to die in vain and
Wiped them smoothly with her silky hair
As if a mother towels her own baby.

The luxurious fragrance filled the room while
The anger of material-ingrained Judas made
Mary an adulterous woman and
Gave stones to people’s mind surreptitiously.

Ah!  But,
The image of the woman drags me to a flower garden.

You guys know love?
Jesus’ this not-so-soft expression made
The woman a luxury item and
The story has been delivered to my ears.

The woman who loved Jesus with all of her heart
Expressed her love by
Throwing away the most precious thing
As if a sinking ship jettisons its fuel.

Well, what should I dump?
Looks like I haven’t loved like that yet.
