Flashbacks, Take Two (Unmentionables, 25)

The priest wore
red robes and a smile.

I’m crouching
in the shadows
at the top
of a dim
gray stairwell.

The sermon
sparkled like stained glass.
I didn’t hear it.

No, it’s not.
I’m at school.
It’s finals.
There’s a test.
Almost time.

he exclaimed,
we have recovered
the True Cross.

I’m watching,
and waiting.
And hiding.
He’s coming.
He’s coming.
