Morning Prayer



rapist monks
in yellowed cowls
fouled with mildew,
with pale toes
layered with warts
that look like extra toes,
meditating, praying,
shitting side by side
on the communal bench,
torn robes pulled up,
faces grimacing,
fat tongues licking
the salt from their fat lips,
as the great glorious glow
enters unto the sky
from the eastern horizon
and the world lights up again
with hope of salvation
