losing my religion

upon the altar, lay, and rest your head

rest your head in your religion

unfrock your Father

defy your mother

i've walked these halls.

these empty halls. hallelujah.

there was a time when i needed proof,

my faith was trod, palms aloof

remove my shoes and wash

my weary feet

these feet,

have traversed this desert for days

in this unforgiving scorch of midday sun

region of mine disownment

where the vultures make circles in the sky

and lizards flee the heat.
