the extension of Lent


this is my diary
and my delivery; this is my
fallowed crack amidst
confused,
between confessions/septic surrenders
and
             a self-channeled voodoo


in the symmetry of my abstinence
life straddles room
     un-balanced
a crucifixion
                  a cross
      a sainted confessor

i can read you my sins
                       my sorrows - voice
                    my psalms

i can recite you my
                          proverb
place        penitence on plate
                                   of promise   -

question? question?
                               ( questioning???)......does

the extension of --- Lent
              make the resurrection sweeter? make
my transfiguration - purer?
oh, confessor!!!
confessor..
(cries) (crying....)
or should i turn this key?   seal this page?
                   tasting of the wine

  1. It sounds like the truth is known. The struggle (confession) is acceptance.
