LOSE THE PEWS
(11/6/19)


we look
toward
the pulpit

to the
choir

across
the aisle

and see
no hint
of The Divine

just
more people

much like
a funeral

church
is not
for the subject
of honor

but simply
for
the survivors

no one
is coming
back
from the dead

or down
from heaven

we turn
in our hymn
books

singing
only
to each
other
