the rock's making (For Good Friday)

friday's sunrise dawned soul's midnight
kinship rejected
friendship forsaken
allegiance rebuffed
trilogy of unbelief

rooster crows
self-certainty dissolved to cowardly denial
truth tastes bitter in timidity's wake
tears sear shame onto cheeks
self-inflicted grief

perfect skin torn
for one
saving his own

this test 
a dress rehearsal 
for greater future stakes

it will not always be this way
today's crumbling rock
will soon hold strong and firm
but friday's failure must come first
