APUD DOMINUM
(7/16/17)

I understand
a bit more Latin
as I age

not through
earnest
effort

I just see
the same tracts
every day

the words
seem good

holy

I write

I work
for a publishing
firm

but I am
as far away
from Gutenberg's
Bible

The Apostles

as I am
from underwater
welding

still
the pages
speak to me

say
that I am
as close to God
as any
of them

as fine

as holy

as I can
be

reading
the restroom
wallpaper

waiting
for angels
to emerge
from the
stalls
