En el Tiempo de los Padres

"You told me to drink from this fountain, inviting me, that is,
to draw the waters of my salvation from your wellsprings, my Savior." - St. Peter

Bring the Padre alkaline and bitters,
communion to quench his insatiable nature.

the cloy of copal.
nails through the cross.
succulent boymeat sacrament.

I confess this sin -
for him, tainted wine;
the root

of vomit and salt;
a last rite of bile;
pentinence a pound of flesh;

this, and the scatter
of bone.
