when you walk into a church and you pray

you want to think

that your prayers undergo

the same amplification as soundwaves do

in there.

a shortcut to the messiah – such is the meaning of

church; prayer in church; manifesting wishes.


when the pastor is speaking

the echo gets in the way

and you can’t understand anything:

babies babble and mamas coo,

every once in a while an amen.

thus, so:

focus, filter, synthesize, prioritize, discriminate

and the echo won’t perturb

but only amplify

(soundwaves and more).
