VIII Jesus Meets The Women of Jerusalem

Here are the tears...

Here is a clutch of weeping
a small group of sobbing

and there is a crowd
like any crowd, confused.

There is anger left
beyond the exhaustion
to cry out, 'don't cry,
cry out instead

against everything that is coming
cry out against the wind.
You might as well.

I will not have you
make my death a private grief'
