Red Sense

Image borrowed from Tess Kincaid

Red Sense

I'm impatient with religion
because when you mix in

just enough obsessive
Tabasco compulsive

it cooks up monsters
gods and terrible animals

that hit you broadside
like flying elephants.

Covered by the blood(y) Mary
in a massive state of grace

I learned early on
to play red light/green light

by carefully ticking
all the appropriate boxes

in the meteor shower
of pachyderm particles.

But now and then
I feel bad about the pennies

I've sucked from the sofa
with the vacuum.
