III Jesus Falls For The First Time

It is the cross which
presses him. Between the
wood and the earth

where the view is
sandal-straps and dog paws
he is fallen.

They say,

'O how the mighty are fallen'.

But all those not mighty
now and then know this view.

'He will bring down the mighty
from their thrones'
to share this view

of sandal-straps and dog paws

pressed by wood.
