snow white asks prince charming for a divorce

Alex Stolis

you ask me
to make
the sign
of the cross
tell me every
thing is black
and white

you recount tales
of pilgrimages
filled with martyrs
demons and redemption

you tell me
about your father
son and holy ghost
how they walk
in at last call
to rescue
the dead
and dying

once upon
a time
gone past
i needed
to believe
but now

there is much
for me to do
letters to be
words to be
exed out
and crimes
to plan
