Breathe in,

breathe out

Feel divine pneuma

climb up your lungs

and oxygenate your blood

Lock yourself

in the closet

and throw away the key

Shut your eyes

and pray to God almighty

To eradicate your sins

But not the shame

Straddle opposing parts of you

like church pews

Dangling legs and

Roving eyes

When will the sermon end?

It ends with you

and begins anew.
