Holy Triduum

Agnus Dei (by Francisco de Zurbaran)

Is feeling nothing

the same as

SHOUTING?

Numbness sharp

as nails

making this day

the same

as any other

Friday.

It doesn’t feel

Good.

You can’t force

Feelings.

Thank God Love

is not just

about feelings.

We’d all be screwed

or nailed.

Still,

I’ll go

through

and wear the motions

like a habit

of shouting

numbly, quietly

CRUCIFY HIM.

And during

this Hollow Triduum

of Hollow Week

I’ll go through

the motions

of waiting.

Then

of being elated

of receiving

Forgiveness

and pretending

to understand

its

depth.
