Why I Believe

Jesus isn’t hip anymore. He
went low watt incandescent,
bell bottoms, mauve. Heaps
of cross-stitched bible verse
stays unwanted at the resale
shop. I recall when the Easter
Bunny made final clearance,
Tooth Fairy too. But heaven
will not go the way of trends.
If there is a chance of seeing
you after this market closes,
I will stay out of style for you.
