Poem: “Second Station”

Second Station
Good Friday

The other day, when we were walking
(we are almost out of time)
I remember you said something serious
(jokingly, of course, of course)
something about a kingdom
(my kingdom for a horse?)
maybe it was something else
(what about hands)
that’s it, I remember
(The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand)
