I clasp my hands and bow my head for You, but
I doubt You are appreciative of this act. On the
movie my mother is watching
a noose hugs Rebecca Nurse’s throat,
the trap drops, and in the rope’s hiss
I hear the song You sing when we finally die.
When a priest breaks the Eucharist, I
think how easily he tears it apart,
then turn to my brother and ask
what would he do if he saw real blood?
