“Let the Messiah Come Down Now from the Cross”

The subject has made claims.
Let us see.

Regard this as an experiment.

Doubt has dogged
the whole story from the start:

Thomas, of course,
Jesus himself in the garden,
now those women huddled on the horizon.

            The centurion alone was certain,
            and such people are capable of anything.

—Elizabeth Poreba

This poem was written in response to the daily readings from Meeting Christ in Prayer.
