First Martyrs of the Church of Rome

...was it awkward

to be the first?

did you slide under

the sheets as the sun

shoved its way

into the room?

when God found you

asleep in the morning,

you never expected

such vibrato--

oh, child, your heart

is whirring like a jet engine.

calm yourself.

you will remember him

like a satellite, rattling

around your ribs.
