Lamb, bound

The following is a poetic reflection on the painting ‘Agnus Dei’ (1635-40) by Francisco de Zuburban.

 

You, alone in the dark.
You, crowned in light. You, slumped
on the line where life meets death
meets life.

You, helpless, legs bound. With
passive horns, lying
in humility, demanding
nothing.

Me, still looking on.
I, Judas.
I, Peter.
I, John.
Beholding
You,
Lamb-of-God.
Have
mercy
on us.
