Sacnosanct
(11/29/2021)


Brother Bollocks
shakes
his head

there truly are
no
sacred words

no
consecrated psalms

no
miraculous songs

no
sanctified structures

no
holy lands

there
is only
God

all the rest
are human
variations
on that theme

perhaps
they are
effective
conduits

comforting
conformities

but not
divinities
unto themselves

we have
created only
anthropomaniacal mirrors
of self-imposed
heresy

Brother Bollocks
shakes
his head

walking
by the sounds
of hymns
from a neighborhood
church

he has
nothing
to sing
in response

but does
hope
that some
souls
are saved

from
themselves
