the body and the blood by David LaBounty

meat

she was
meat
not
like
food
but
maybe
more
like
the
body and the blood

of the
naked
Christ

getting
me
through
the
wishbone
of my
yellow years

years
like
the
hollow
points
of
a thousand
amens

come on
next lady

come and
pray
with me
again

  2. You have nailed it. Love these lines:

    “like
    the
    hollow
    points
    of
    a thousand
    amens”

    Thanks, Winnie
