Infuse joy and Lent
Christ in the desert
Large quantities of
shock and chemical mercy.
Biologically there is no God and
telepathic insight resembles schizophrenia.
Conditioned to mystical surgery.
A decomposing visionary sits troubled in the corner.
The party continues:
Did you try the wine?
She burned down the house to roast that pig.
Don't pigeonhole the Mexican peasant.
Nothing is Eden.
The world sits directly behind these voices.
Intolerable surroundings and moral infections,
comfortable intellect and spiritual fashion
create religious overtones
and the party continues.
