Communion

.
three bells wrung thrice boys kneeling

a candle at the altar burning

god’s portrait on the ceiling

holy wafer held high

priest bowing priest turning

golden chalice drunk dry

should I laugh or should I cry

once more, with feeling

greenhorn skater on the ice

a mythic dance can be appealing
