Sunday A Week After Ayer - Poem by Native Dreamer

My head grows big here
with ideas i want to get down on paper
Madrid? Budapest?
Lorca, Picasso? Relentless questions
as i hide in the Sunday church
Until all that remains
in the tabernacle i see
is a chalice which seems like a womb,
absorbing my guilt,
O Lord make haste to help me before the hearse arrives.
So long as the demon drink doesnt take me ill feel the birds song
