Sample piece from Via Crucis

Mortality Sonnet

The applause was hesitant at first,
nobody quite sure whether or not
the corpse would get up again.
It lay supine, cheek to the dust,
the spine twisted into an attitude
somewhere between relief and agony.
There was a grimace underlying the jaw
so ambivalent it was almost a grin;
it might have been taken for sarcasm.
So the handclaps were sporadic to begin with,
until all at once it became apparent
what daring theme the Artist had conceived.

That was when the Angels burst into wild applause.
