the box of souls…


from which god it came
no one really seems to know
but held in one’s hands
while facing someone different
objects from that soul are felt
this should give enlightenment
but i have been told
what one feels and understands
when carefully viewed
is what’s found inside another
is what one knows of one’s self


when the service ends…


the police report
noted the beast was concealed
surprised witnesses
claim worship was quite normal
but just outside the entry
faith’s face was strewn on the ground
