Pale Evidence of Fire

‘the smoke of Satan…has entered the Sanctuary’–Pope Paul VI
Banish this smokescreen, waiting. Might it be
a tactic favored by the wicked side
to keep the earth’s inheritors at sea?
Oh ye, of listing faith. Why have men hide
their natural desires? Pray don’t divorce
passion to please some cleric’s pale account.
Yet geldings graze the land. The palest horse
harries the church. Apostasies dismount
to snuff, at will, the reverential wick
of sanctity. The Holy Father sleeps
while Watchers mass for darkness in their pick

of Peter’s unlit chapels. Mary weeps
as nothing in her bosom can foreclose
the taking.

 Love, we harvest for its woes.
