Angus Dei


Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis'

Baptismal Record:
that's not my signature.
I speak for myself, now
Confirmation,
no record of it
I have disavowed my Catholic Faith.

there is nothing
that can be found
that has my scribbled
signature
that says
I don't have an opt-out clause

I did promise once to a therapist
that I wouldn't,
my word is worthless
once to a nurse that I wouldn't
but I was forced to sign
to stay in the group
I told her the signature that is coerced
means nada

miserere' nobis
memento mori'
miserere' nobis

ah!
then there are the bull dogs!

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
