                       to worship

                                       tininess of a
                                                    martyr
                                                    observe
                                                    shrinking
                                                    church in
                                                    rearview
                                                    mirror
                                      the black deer
                                   it turns out was
                                    beige a tan doe
                                    covered in flies
                                     flesh of shame
                                         is nearly the
                                     shame of flesh
                          pressing an unstable
                          clock to cactus with one,
          two, three counts of recalibration
          fuck you who ask for
          forgiveness instead of
permission                          all
          clocks are precarious inscrutable windows
