the easter cycle: cleopas and his friend

three days ago
they broke His body on the hill
for the sake of expedience

and now we run back from
the village having watched
that body break the bread

of presence, the sacrifice
made priest, the prophesied
made prophet, the king of the

Jews made the Lord of lords
we fly back to Jerusalem
with hearts aflame

three days ago we too were
slain. and now today
we also rise again.
