Any Additional Thoughts About the Crucifixion?

What can anyone not on a cross say to someone on it?

The shipwrecked spell
in bits of sail, clothing,
ripped sheets, shells,

in whatever is around,

a message

illegible on the ground.

—Elizabeth Poreba


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