The Party Favors In The Offering Plate Seem Out Of Place

the party favors in the offering plate seem out of place
I am out of place I hear God sigh and the stained glass
shines in a different way

I'll meet you outside I say to Him as I go in
and then I do and Sunday begins.
the bacon and eggs afterwards the

grape jelly like a jewel on the plate
broken up into smaller jewels
spread on the buttered toast

garnets I thought after I learned that word.
and now in the tiny rose garden Outside
no petals fall and it is afternoon and

now there is no school my favorite dream,
only the roses
