St. Pius X

this is what

it feels like

to flail.

to reach for the

hot heart of Mary

and come back


he hooked our song

with one long claw

and looped it

up and out

of our throats.

I have already

forgotten the chords

I use in bed,

what to hum

when I get

so close

to your ear.


  1. love what you're doing here. not just this post, which is some nice crisp verse, but the entire concept of this blog is funny deep and compelling. bravo!

  2. Thanks, Gerry! I really appreciate your comment and your readership :)
