A Letter From St. Paul To The Clowns

in answer to your question

I would say

the acrobat's circus

is her cathedral

she is closer to heaven than you

every prayer a swinging rope

reached for or

fallen from

to

the lion's breath

the broken whip

the rising dust

below


I would say

kneel beneath her
