    it’s the name I found
    when I went looking
    for what happened

    on Wednesday of the
    Week we’ve labeled
    Holy — using capital

    letters as though there
    were some sort of scripted
    suspense instead of a simple

    day of preparation for Passover,
    for supper together, and the
    selling of one friend by another.

    No cloaks. No daggers. No
    hidden microphones in camel’s
    ears. Just a lot of getting ready.

    I have to get ready for Judas
    to leave the room tomorrow night;
    it breaks my heart every time

    because he didn’t last the
    weekend. He never heard the
    news he was forgiven.

    Love was lurking through
    it all like a thief in the night,
    or a spy on Wednesday.
