Church Shooting

The crucifix
Burns my skin
Too

The innocent
Suffer most
Before the sun
Burns
To a permanent
eclipse

You don’t need
Perspective
To give up
Hope

You don’t need
Reason
To kill

Christ Carpentry
And a nail
In the apex
Of soft skulls
Terminal Children

There have been fathers
Beating
Raping
children
For “sexuality”
Developed years
After their date of death.
All justified
With the name
Inscribed
On their coffin

The rounds
Aren’t only for
Soldiers
Metallic dangling
Cross hair
Around their neck
Fighting for their righteous cause
But for the small hands
And the distant dreams
Worth the fight

For them
They pray
To a tyrant
With a lower case t
Housed in
A coffin
With stained glass windows
