when you walk into a church and you pray
you want to think
that your prayers undergo
the same amplification as soundwaves do
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.
focus, filter, synthesize, prioritize, discriminate
and the echo won’t perturb
but only amplify
(soundwaves and more).
