On a barge in the dark the temporary vicar directs prayers

invented fervours

arch parole in egg light

THE SHIVERS says Jesus is giving the shakes

I don't feel a thing
but want to be in it

Outside the cold hasn't come so
the obscene green leaves creak

A broken panel above
the worn blue nylon
through to yellowed gloss


  1. "I don't feel a thing
    but want to be in it"

    this is familiar to me, as well.

  2. For me growing up in a faith and then finding yourself thrown to the periphery when a moment's sold as an event: not the best.

    1. caged and discarded feeling that wore away as i realized it was never meant for me, painful years. not the best, I agree but for me, made the best possible.

      love this one.
