Latest Distraction Of Love65 - Poem by DAVID GERARDINO

TINY stained -glass windows,
narrow wodden pews, and the
walls red or blue, IV fluids
tenuosly suspended, by a bed
made out of nails, and drugs
that take him far away, to a
land of oz. OVER head lights
illuminates the body of christ,
or is it just a X-RAY of me or
you.LAUGHTER from down the
hall, tears from this room, a child
sits by his mother, and wonders
if all this is true..
