churches close up – October 26


churches close up,

fall vacant, stop

trying. and where

is God


away, absent, busy

elsewhere, while we

took too much

for granted


and Jesus went to

where voices and

hearts are open



while the world walks

backward into the

thinly veiled



of secular illusion.
