searchin’ for the felt board Jesus. a poem.

i don’t claim to have the smarts of a

seminarian but i do know somethin’

about the priesthood. loving

Jesus since i could walk makes me one of

those folks Saint Peter

talked about bein’ priestly,

only i’m burned out pro’ly

on account of my grays but also

pro’ly ’cause capitalism gets all mixed

up with theology

and the little girl singin’ Jesus loves me

finds herself

lost in the latest dog and pony show

wondering

if the little clapboard churches mostly

abandoned are the only ones

who got it right. but like i said

i’m no seminarian.

just a girl searching for the felt board

Jesus

and his friends.
