Day Forty — Holy Saturday


He descended into hell …
— from The Apostle's Creed.

Dead with the Dead


      fallen down


              into the depths, to the deepest,


    utterly abandoned.

in nothing

in the darkness, the dust, the silence.

Here — there is no Praise of God

Here — there is no god

only — this god, this man, this dead

  this one who came

     this one who fell

        to the depths

to the deepest depths

of the abyss.

"What he has not assumed
          he has not redeemed"
