Notes Scribbled During Mass One Time and Found in a Drawer this Morning

Catholic Answers: a novel, comedy, tragicomedy

Bottled Water: a story or a poem … name of a band? Holy water on the brain: image of a person, a container … purity, ephemeral, tenuous, evaporating, returning … “whose name was writ in water” (Keats)

humidifier (vs. dryness)

shot by the starting gun
no race to run
abstract loss, barely begun

    Rufus! Scribbing notes during Mass again! Ten demerits!

  2. Good poem.
