It’s just grape juice.

Hush.
That wisdom is overwhelming,
intolerable placid chimes.

Creases will find themselves

branching, splitting to your temples
                    (every sunday morning).

And Christ confessed,
it’s just grape juice,

it’s a virus’ spread;
golden rimed goblets
passed through hands

of

gospel dwellers,
choir memes,
pew people,
virgin teens

waiting in line,
down the aisle–
brace yourself.
Scold the child,
          “hands under seat,
           control your feet,
           kneel down and
           say a prayer

           for me.”
