when the centurion’s servant lay dying

there was no chemotherapy

no antibiotics

no cure for the death inside him

except God (a long way off)

so when the commander defers to Jesus

with the authority of a God

he is saying that in a pantheon of

worthless idols

he stands before

The Real Thing

but he is implying more than

that blood listens

bone listens

marrow obeys

death bows low

to the simple Man

called salvation
