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.
