Everything in its place

It strikes me that Holy Week should be marked this year, in particular. Why?  I'm not exactly sure. But it feels like a Holy Week sort of week and I'm not exactly sure Easter will arrive. Some years are like that, I guess.

This is how
I keep track
Of the world
It is Good Friday.
I have missed Holy Week
This year.
Usually I keep track
With the Triduum.
This year
A cold has landed
In my head.
I am stuck
At home.
My feet declined
To be washed.
No creeping
To the cross.
Easter will come
As it does
Every year.
But not quite yet.
First Jesus
Will empty Hell
Then Easter
Then Easter
