Indoctrination












Indoctrination

Walking by a church
Catholic
not the one I attended as a child
Statues
columns
stained glass
pageantry
ceremony within
call to me
Not Jesus
older
more the gods I studied
when I was young
not the one I believed in
when I was young
Not even them
they’re all Greek to me
I feel
belief
pulling me
every bit of flesh
deep in the center of me
Only my mind
keeps me from dancing
around fires
with those old
almost forgotten
deities
