Believer - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

BELIEVER
Masticating
the Holy Host

he thought transubstantiation
was not just a very long word

but just
so much philosophical masturbation.


Hard to swallow
sticking to the roof of one’s mouth.

Jesus! Putting up
a fight!

Drowning in a sudden surge of salvia.

I, only
a believer

in sunlight
& the loveliness

of your smile.
