piccolo pete released in a church

patience was a gift;

gift from a screaming child

with a torch burning down the rafters-

as the smoke fills this locked shrine

my sense of justice leaves my eyes

the stained glass melts through my palms

the child hands me the torch

vanishes

into the black of the night

like a piccolo pete
