Imagine the Crucifixion Itself

I don’t want to look.
Besides, why think of

just one death when
this morning 300 in Cairo—

for example.


I need to be able
to turn to the class tomorrow

and say Good Morning,
Good Morning

—Elizabeth Poreba

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