Witness

I place myself down in waiting

upon weeping crosses crafted

from sponges; rendered fragile

 

by vanilla plumage. Their art:

imitate salvation. Imitation is

flattery—imitation is mockery.

 

Salvation is fragile, anemic as

pastoral sexuality. Give flight,

exorcised semen that parrots

 

godly egos: echoing glass

stained in abstinence, pews

that even weigh perceptions

 

of color as sinful. Windows

fertilize lumber with white

caws. Imitation is mockery.

Hello, fellow bundle of nerves and flesh! I'm a simple little being who's half-poet, half-scientist, and all gelatinous chaos. Sort of like an illogical marshmallow. If you'd like to learn more, please seek out the "First Impressions" page. Thank you for the visit, bundle friend.
