Priest



Inspired by the book Maid, written by Stephanie Land.

Priest.
A book
Comes to me.
I have stories.
Some I can tell
Some only
In false nose
And glasses
Some
Not even then..
They hide in the caverns
Of my heart.

Breakfast with the birds

The world is filled with breakfast companions

They eat
So little
Except
By body weight
So much
They make charming
Breakfast companions
I would gladly
Feed them
More.

The small of it

Loss has a ripple effect.

We lose an hour
Tonight
But that
Is a pittance
In the Likert Scale
Of loss.
It often comes
Lasts for days
Upon days
Months
Or years.
Loss comes draped in black.
It can also come
With shiny shoes
So we think
We're dressing up
For Cinderella's ball.
We lose an hour
Tonight
But that
Is the small of it.

Some days are meant to sing

For the cardinals

Some days are meant
To sing
Some
Not so much.
In spring the birds
Know the song
They forgot
All winter.

Each word

Lent is to remember

Each word
Is part of the whole.
In our beginning
Came
One
Single
Word
Yet
Here we are.
We think
We are the only word
There is,
No matter how plural
Our only
Is.
We were all spun off
From that one
Common source.
We forget.
Lent
Is to remember.
Easter
Is to celebrate
The wholeness.

Order

Appetizers come first, unless they don't

Alphabetical
Numerical
Order
Give us order
Of any kind
We will march to it.
For example
Dessert always
Comes last
Appetizers
Come first.
Unless of course
It's time
To change
It up.

Magic mushrooms

Which side of the mushroom does today call for?

We live
On magic mushrooms
Some make us bigger
Some smaller
Some help us live
Exactly
Where we are.
Different days
Call
For different thoughts
Expand
Contract
Stay here
Exactly here.
