To release the chains

After Romans 6:1-14

To release the chains
required a death like
his death, with a promise
of release from death

and I told myself
this seems circular
not linear, this

death is spiritual
death is physical

dead to this life
alive to next life

the chains fall
from wrists
from ankles
the chains drop

death is dead
I see you through
God’s eyeglasses
