The Body of Christ
by Christopher T. Dabrowski
Translated from Polish by Filip Kiełbowicz
“Maaa! God lives in heaven, right?” little Martine was asking her mother a lot of questions.
“Yes, honey,” she answered, not stopping cleaning the knife of
blood. (she couldn’t stand: when a twelfth canvasser came that day...
she stabbed him. He was cooling down now, near the bailiff’s corpse
hardening in concrete).
“But is it true that he’s got a body?”
“But in this book it’s written ‘The Body of Christ’.”
“It’s just written that way. Go ask daddy. He’ll explain everything to you.”
Explain? How? a perplexed Martine thought. She had seen a
little grey man with big grey eyes take dad to a metal box, and they
did the Ascension.
The grey thing from the sky, was that the Body of Christ?
