Is that salty wafer really
a piece of Jesus?
Is that grape-juice-for wine
in that Dixie cup his blood?
Are Catholics & Protestants really
cannibals in three-piece suits?
“Take a bite out of Christ.”
the billboards announce.
Pardon my galilean grimace
and my clenched cramped fist,
Communion has always creeped me out.
