Flashbacks, Take Two (Unmentionables, 25)

Sunday.
The priest wore
red robes and a smile.

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

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

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

Rejoice!
he exclaimed,
we have recovered
the True Cross.

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