Poem by me

I saw the Benjamen Button movie today with my son Patrick. What an amazing movie. Very powerful.


Held under water
No sin forgiven
The struggle for breath
Negates remorse.

To put your head under
Shout sin and shame away
As a preacher blatant upon
His pulpit-
Does not inhale.

The poignancy of breath
In purgatorial situations
Lofts sin onto a fisherman’s
Perch
To be scaled and de-boned.
