A Missed Poem

=Pulpit and the Pews=

Can grab Peter
To play Paul.

Viva, 'tis okay, 
She has no objection,
No grudge,
No hocus-pocus.
Only that her burdens are
Itchy crosses to bear.

A petulant-
Entity enticement,
That knits her brow.
To her,
Not needed they are
In the free air.
We meet, we mix or miss.

Tangle that mangled,
The phantom in their
Framed mirrored lid.
Tattering she mends
“Not mine and never 

Behold her for her stand.
“Cynics’ labels are nothing
Should you hold within yourself.
You’re something
And anything
You believe you are.
While God’s tag is
