On Sunday


(First appearance on Instagram. 4/--/15)

My church: those who seek

The outcasts among

Poets, skilled

At both hiding and revealing



How a heart runs out

Of religion, once branded.

Burned, biding time

While healing and concealing

Deep wounds.


“One day, you’ll be sorry.”

No! One day, I’ll be whole.

It’s too early to tell.

It’s too late to prevent.


Watch with me.
