A late breakfast is better than sex.
That is probably not true
But it’s better than all the sex I’ve had
But that’s the kind you shouldn’t do.
In a church built with stones of prayer
Where the potluck reigns supreme
A broken-down automobile
Can seem like an eternity.
Repentance is a gift
A thing we mostly don’t quite learn–
or learn the hard way,
in suffering and consequence
and we wonder if we could ever
give that gift to ourselves…
