Silver Dollars

img_1474_midnight_dream_400They broke
The bread,
And drank
The wine;
Silver dollars
Caked In brine.

I heard the
whispers and
Hushed tones,
I felt the golden
Knives sink in.

Like old women
In parking lots
They gathered
Around the flames
With their gossip
And their strife.

Like wild
mushrooms
Blooming in
The spring;
I could hear
The angels
Sing.

A gentle,
Tender song;
The poets,
And the puppets,
The prophets
And the priests.

The troubadours
And dancers,
Prancing in
The streets.

They broke
The bread,
And drank
The wine;
Silver dollars
Caked in
Brine.

I heard the
whispers and
Hushed tones,
I felt the golden
Knives sink in.

The
Congregation
Of the spring.
