Three times

After John 21:15-17


The third time

they’d seen him

since the cross,

sharing fish

on the shore,

fish he cooks

on the shore:

three questions 

he asks, three

queries he

directs to

the man who

denied him

before death,

denied him

three times in

three questions,

asks three times

do you love

me, Simon?
