ST. ALEX

My little lamp would bid me light. As I used to say my prayers, each night. On my knees, at my bedside. I’d hold my tiny, white rosary tight. I’d envision St. Alex, in all his might. Holy Water sprinkled on my chest, still drying. I’d beg for the Father to scoop me away For […]

DOMINION

Four corners and I’ve walked them all Sleeping under trailers, in bathroom stalls. Fighting to stay warm before the school bell rang. Hiking through the woods, every bird, I’ve heard them sing. Made a lot of friends, lost as many. I’ve taken and borrowed, given my last few pennies. I know the paths here, where […]

Call me crazy, but I hear the trumpets. A joyful noise, and a voice like thunder. Angel dust, settle around my feet. Leave behind the imprint of me. […]

Believe The Eagle

When he walked as a man, They were side by side, and hand in hand. When the world split in two, He would carry her into the blue, knowing well that she’d forget the truth. How they’d lived, and they’d loved. Now he’s screeching in the sky above No return, no reprise. Believe the eagle […]
