Covering Tracks

There was water on Mars
all along,
despite what the experts told us
about the supposedly desolate rock
while we were still young and impressionable,
but we learned over time the truth
about that slight irregularity
in the vast expanses of human insightfulness;

just like maybe
Jesus didn’t spring from the womb
of a virgin
who might’ve been
a bit apprehensive
about how else to break the news
to her fawning betrothed.
