His Saviour(For Scarlett) - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

I get pliers
climb to the crucifix

on a wobbly

pull out
the nails

one by one

(real little nails for his little hands)

I tell him
he is free now


go to

But Christ
He just lay there

in an agony
not knowing

which way was Heaven

...any more.
