"Sustain, Remain, Suffice"

“Sustain, Remain, Suffice”

Edifices of fire-red brick

Structures with spires jutting heavenbound

Altars of marble

Devotees to the left

Fanatics to the right

Arguing about the merits and faults of the ambidextrious

Words spoken garbled

Utterings uttered softly lest you offend

Syllables, Sounds, Phonics in an odd Symphony

And yet, God remains

And yet, God sustains

And yet, God suffices

The droves of humankind

Packed in pews

The squirming in the seat

From serpentine sermons

The complexities and complexes

On the way to the Eucharist

The Word

The Body

The Blood
