HOLY GHOST
(1/31/13)


there are
three lights
above
the sink
in our office
restroom

they are
classy
metallic fixtures
mounted upon
wallpaper
depicting images
and Latin text
from biblical
print plates
as is befitting
a publisher

an automated
switch triggers
their illumination
upon entry

the first
two bulbs
ignite
almost immediately

the third
remains dark
while I approach
the urinal

unzip

and commence
my release

sometime
in midstream
there is a flicker
then a soft glow
and finally
full brightness
from the final
incandescent

quite
the display
for the completion
of a trinity

I feel
blessed

even
in this
most profane
of settings
