An Orthodox Church by Red Candlelight

The Christians have infiltrated every part of the holy city
But have kept a pilgrim’s innocence:
Look at this savior we just unearthed, isn’t it cool
How he’s outlasted death?

Pigeons hide on the cross.
Manifestation stays within our reach.
Madonna and Child are transparently
Mary Magdalene and Jesus’s baby.

Crowns on the caskets, beards on the priests,
The sun is a jar on a woman’s head.
The hymnless singing brings out beggars
To sell candles in full entrepreneurial force.
