Detta Maddalena

Hello friends,

Today I bring you a poem that is part Gospel, part realism and part fan fiction. Detta Maddalena, originally published in The Ekphrastic Review, takes you through Mary’s thoughts in the days and weeks after Jesus’s death.

Please let me know what think in the comments, if you’d like.
