seven knots in the wood

Harvey S. Mozolak

let there be
creating affixed to a tree

disobedience swallowed whole
on the violent hill's violation
a cry that the kingdom is come near
to those hopeless even afar
new love for each other
bonds beyond blood and loss
in the midst of abandonment
remembering the God who never forgets
slaking sharpness in throating death
a sponge on a spear
it is done
handed over to heaven
the earth
named conquered explored

in a breath narrowed to nothing
on a board
