Clip-ons

70’s mod church

mismatched red carpets

2001: a space odyssey sanctuary

crayon butterfly tapestry

embroidered with names of kids

            from the first communion class

 

this is not an old church

like a gothic European cathedral

but this is an old church

like powdered wrinkles

and unadaptable change

 

white-haired women wear clip-ons

that hang like gauges on a Brooklyn hipster
