Well, if it's not my best poem, at least it's short. You'll only lose about 40 seconds of life reading it!




Someday Soon

I should try

Church of Our Saviour

a mile down the road

rambunctiously progressive

or so I hear

even by Episcopalian standards

 

I should ask Christie

if she's ever read

"All Tropic Places Smell of Mold"

by Karl Shapiro

 

I should ask Jennifer

for a blessing for absolution

& if she'll hear my fifth step

True, 40 seconds, but I've read it three times now. Make that four.
