Communion

We are not so different,
you and I.

When you are sitting
in the church house,
on a Sunday morning,
with the brethren,

I will be lying in
the hotel room,
on a Sunday morning,
with the heathens.

but we will both
be drinking
the blood
of your Lord

and Savior.

We will both
be tasting
of the

Flesh.
