He was too much for them

It was the much in Magdalene that Jesus loved.
for, as Mark says,
“He was too much for them”
like a woman who loves too much
like an ointment that costs too much
and is spilled too much
like a seventy times seven God
who forgives too much
like a seed that grows too much
and yields thirty
a hundred fold
