Elizabeth Pellegrino

8:00 Mass

Sniffed snot & incessant coughs. Hanker-

chief hymns as homily drones. Snippet

whisperconversation. Snorts drown outside summer

shouts. Revved sedans on Sunday morning.

Burned incense. Overdosed elderly perfume.

Expired lily petals. The room is filled with stained

glass sunrays and parishioners

nodding themselves to salvation.
