Then Mary Magdalene, who’s Jesus’ pal,
dared put the question: “How do we perceive
your risen body?” (She’s the femme fatale.)
“With Spirit? Soul?”
“Don’t, Mary, touch my sleeve.
Neither. You see with Nous — when you retrieve . . . .”

“What lifts the sales of chocolates off their keister
better than sweet-tooth shoppers every Easter?”

[NOTE : Three Voices of Easter is based on a fragment of The [Gnostic] Gospel of Mary, 10:17-24. The fragment ends with a tear in the parchment at 10:25 and leaves us guessing about what completes the statement. The Greek word for Mind is Nous, meaning not brain but Platonic (and Gnostic) non-local mind; that is, by analogy, in today’s terminology, not the radio broadcasting and receiving gear but the electromagnetic broadcast waves.]
