at an antique store i saw a bird_bath,
holy water tub with pillar
and snatched it.
i hailed a cab to the church,
and gave the guy something
substantial to help me drag it
in the foyer.
i poured in evian,
knelt back into a murphy's oiled pew
and watched 'placebo effect'.
he said america was crafted out of fruit cake.
he said you could build an igloo out of fruit cake.
john ashcroft'd make a cadillac from_
the constitution's one,
"we're the lucky ones,"
he'd laugh murmur in,
a rock-kneed bear hug.
never did i tell him to stop.
