A supper of bread, wine

After Luke 22:14-23

It’s set before them,

this simple meal of bread

and wine, a familiar rite

performed each year, 

a rite of remembrance.


This meal is a rite

of remembrance, but

remembrance forward,

a meal of passing over

becoming a meal

of passed over, named

for the one whose blood

is splashed on the door,

the sign given to save

those within.


They take bread,

break it.

They drink wine,

share it.
