We Christians


Ever since Constantine
We’ve been as sweet as Jesus
And killing with the passion
Of pagans.  At some point

In the life of an alcoholic
He has to make a choice:
The story or the bottle. 
Words go on as smoothly

As the plaster plasterers
Use to fill in the cracks
Or the artist uses to shape
The acts of a saint

On the fa├žade of a church
Built to repel an attack.
The heart is like a monk
Buried inside the library

Looking for proof
He doesn’t need any proof.
