day thirty-four moment

"the veil of the temple was torn in two
from top to bottom"
Mark 15:38

the very bowels of the earth quake
with Jesus' death

first a low rumbling
and then a heaving
as the ground ruptures

the priests in the temple
ready to burn incense

suddenly a roar
and the huge magnificent heavy curtain
guarding the holy of holies
from top to bottom
revealing the Ark of the Covenant

the earth continues its convulsions
opening tombs
releasing bodies

and the blood of Jesus is sprinkled
on the altar of history

Jesus led the way
and forever the veil between us is torn

I run through his broken body and spilled blood
into the holy of holies
