“Christ and the Two Criminals”
Michael Dorr & Evan Schwartz
I have devoted myself these past twelve months to writing only sonnets so when this project began, I sought to represent Christ and the two criminals crucified with Him – not only their views but their very bodies -as sonnets. But one of the condemned speaks a mere nine words, while the other utters forty-two. Christ himself says just thirteen words and only to one of the criminals.
