sometimes I stare
at the wallpaper

count geometric patterns

watch the shadows fall

I smoke blunts
and speak to the effigy

who hangs on my wall

his pale blue robe fading
into the sea of Galilee

his eyes sharp and shiny
his smile soft

if I had a resolute bone
in my body

I could really love that guy.
