I've Seen the Light
Smoke fills a little box of nicotine dreams
Where nothing ever
                                  is
As it seems
 
Jesus sits across the room
Watching me
Always watching me
Write poetry
 
He has a fancy watch and bolo tie
Though I have never asked him why
 
In the cage with dripping bars we are alone
Soaking in the noxious fumes
My comfort zone
 
Choking words from present
Future
Past
 
The Man squints but still watches
Silently
As blocks begin to pass
 
So they can frame
Their grilled cheese sandwiches
 
They can charge admission
To see The Virgin Mother where she lies
In the oil slick behind the garage
 
I hear their cries 
Hallelujah!
But I've a skeptic's eyes
 
Do I think it's heaven-made?
No
Light reflects on glass...
 
 
When I tilt the shade

I've read this several times, and it makes as much sense to me as things ever make sense to me when I'm writing. I love it! The imagery plays like a movie in my mind. Good work. ML (Once I saw Doc Severensen in an oak tree across the road.)

A write layered with messages and imagery, very well done.
