His mouth opened fully amuse
the bid of a good decline
subito the drummer would play
dabbing for Chick Webb
his ornate salute
the proper canopy of a prophylactic
wand its way into the berry sap
though a quiet protest
note blue endeavor
tender press afar
erupted the cloying submission
of a morning purpose
soft as church music
summoning worshipers
call to prayer
justify this sinner memorized scriptures
second book of Samuel
chapter 11 verses 1 thru 5
as the volume stirred David loins for Bathsheba
soft as church music . . .
the hymn for where he bloomed for you
