The Two Popes

For some God comes in silence

and for others it’s a saxophone solo.

 

He’s the confession a lonely parish priest

has waited all day to see and hear


after lattice hours of watching

smoke blow down

like  Cain’s rejected offering.

 

Every soul has two Popes,

both living in God

but are not of it.

 

One preserves the past,

the other walks hope’s path.
