Read Matthew 21:1-11

After the crowds disperse

After the cloaks are gathered

After the colt is tethered

After the stones grow silent


After a cloak is stripped

After a back is striped

After the nails pierce

After the body hangs

After the stone rolls away


After fronds are stripped of blades

After a child’s hands enfolds a cross


Then holy fire consumes

all things crossed

wood and frond and flesh


Grey ash is mixed with blessed water

and marks our lives with grace


rising incorruptible

we join the procession
