as once was so

September 22, 2017

for danté
and virgil whence

they trespassed so

in the Inferno

’twas that was as
it was
for My Son, too

in his harrowing
of it . . .

on that Holy Saturday
when at
mid-tierce,
about 7:30

in the mourning,

mine, I
pondered, too

why, oh why
My God
hast thou forsaken

me, too?

but in no time I
would know not
to be
miss-taken,

for My Son
had only
descended therein
long enough

to forgive those
who trespassed

against Him
