A Hymn Gone Awry

Confess:
Broken marbles for eyes
Make cracked mirror images
Into miracle circus freak shows


Paper mouths flutter
Cutting tongues as white lies slip by
Dropping ink blot smirks into open palms-
This, the sacrament of secrets


Sour wind's note
A hymn gone awry
Collects in the absence of tissue
Mist of thorns resting in joints


Ghosting breath burrows into smoke signals
A reconnaissance of the ethereal flight
Of pastel positives making stars appear
Now forest floor lit – heavy gasps sound.
