He asks a question
OCTOGENARIAN

He asks a question
 1
the real monument dying like us
 2
the tree of knowledge against His bleeding back
 3
a man gives Him drink out of fear
 4
animals soaring in praise
 5
the woods hurting
 6
His head with a crown of thorns
 7
with each cut from the green of Eden
 8
He says goodbye to His anger at man
 9
then He sees us all as leaves that would have turned forever dead
 10
He commands Himself to death
 11
to give those He chose His holy ghost
 12
so they could be summer green
