He lives his prophecy

After Hosea 1

I am to marry you
by the vision, a woman,
stained, a symbol
of something else
for something else,
another purpose but
also the one defined,
the story of a people,
stained, vile, a filth
to be scrubbed and
cleaned, and I am
to marry you, and
be faithful to you,
removing the stain.
