Prostitution Politics I live in a brothel, But I am not a whore. Personally opposed to impurity, I’m chaste to the core. I help with the auctions, But no slaves are mine.

Poem: “This”

by

This This, only this is truly necessary. An outdated wooden crucifix in a forgotten sacristy corner, my forehead pressed to the nail-pierced feet reducing ten thousand things to one. A simple act that clarifies. Calling, inviting – I come. This single act making me one. Scott Warren

White Tulips Making fun among the tombs, Crumbling marble shake-shakes for shame. Dry bones gaze up, on carefree bodies Frolicking upon the grass.White tulips crane Graceful necks, framed by slender green, From vases placed on graves That mark the silent, Monuments that mourn The passed. Spirited love Warms Still souls Hearts beat Beneath the Soil’s […]

Nomad At Night Wind scorpions move safely under night’s cover A long life’s  journey erased on windswept dunes The nomad travels under the stars Following the rise of many moons Final morning brings the fruit of hardship’s travels Then the Nomad will lie down at the feet Of He who watches in the West Waving forward those He’s waited to meet Surrounded by banquets, with music and song!

My Work Knowing my routines as close neighbors do, They regard me with suspicion as I drive off to church- “It’s a weekday, for chrissakes!” They don’t know it is my job. My work to adore the sacristan’s bounty of a dark and empty church, to polish the holy vessels of the Precious Body and […]
