mature individuals seeking

the wine stained carpet
holds
oak pews
worn smooth
from
ups-and-downs
pews
where
generic prayers
from hymnal page
twenty-nine
shall we gather at the river
are offered
as indemnification
in the event
that their souls
wash up
on heaven’s shores
hymns
offered in a voice
befitting
their status as
part-time believers
and
full-time seekers
of pleasure
the kinds of folks
you find
every weekend night
hanging tight
with those half their age
youths
impressed
with their worldly wisdom
wisdom
plagiarized
from the new yorker
and
regurgitated
after several glasses
of the
in drink
and though
they died year ago
the shell of their existence
still haunts this earth
with after dinner drinks
in hand
and
fantasies
fluttering around
their corpses
