Christ’s Body Double

They nailed James Legg up as J. Christ
[flayed – undressed of skin – purified]
Carpue found employment – scraping
They pinned Legg up – pinned him for
artists in life studies – to see him still
& then moved to their pegged sheets
[shifting corpses from gallows works]
He is held high – Christ’s body double
