Churches of the Developed World

15 March 2008

(a partly found poem)

to light a candle
drop any coin into the slot
(more coins may be required
for longer prayers)

on medical advice
communion is to be made by
receiving the bread only
(salivation is to be kept
to a minimum)

not in use
the alms box owing to recent
forced removal of padlocks
(bag checks now operate
in this church)

under electronic surveillance
you
(and you and you and you -)
