Communion

She brings the cup,
makes herself irresistible
in ways I never could master.
Time’s crumbling cathedrals
make us wary
of the dangers
of misplaced faith.

And who is to choose
which communion
is most holy?

You kneel at the rail —
drink from the golden cup.

You kneel at her bed —
drink from the golden hips.

The holy blood and flesh,
the sacred cunt —
what tyrannical god
could ever demand a choice?

And how could you do otherwise
in the face of their
grim and misleading authority,
but listen to the deep-voiced
mystic wind and world —
and let it lead you
to right?
