Subject(s): Confessions; Sin

From my poor sins I am set free.
In lilac dusk the taper smolders;
The dark stole's rigid drapery
Conceals a massive head and shoulders.

"Talitha kumi": Is it He
Once more? How fast the heart is beating ...
A touch: a hand moves absently
The customary cross repeating.
