Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!
What the Bible said. A satin
cassock. A tail
that never drags in the dirt. No nasty
acne. No yellowed armpit stain.
And no nails
in the hands & feet. No salt
in the wound. Just satiny
sanity. No narrow slit
to stick the tongue through. No tiny
pin pecks for eyes. No last
minute pleas to be added to the list.
