The separation of church and state

1.

In separation of church and state

I’ll be the church

and when you come back with ‘wherein shall I worship?’

I say, ‘I’m only after your money’

2.

Soft     easy     white-

Unlike heaven,

Life demands hard lines

Even when there is no such thing

3.

The note you left me fits in my hand

They always do

But I want to step off your palm up your sleeve

and emerge out of your trouser-leg
