Description

Los Angeles, Michelangelo, Jude, peopling the lost souls, tell me now:

Do you remember this eye, this hand, these ears, this

mouth? May I break my solemn invocation with a sneeze?

Forgive me. No bless yous –

my sinuses are cork-tight. No soul will leak tonight. I have Benadryl, Claritin,

Zyrtec. The clerics. They'll not deliver me unto

any Egyptian waters; I haven't yet written my holy litany,

my radiant magnum dopus.
