Poem: “Momentary Atheist”

I studied you tonight

as if I were reading

and re-reading

the Bible in Braille

but when I came

to the passages reviling fornication

I became a momentary atheist

“Momentary Atheist” is included in my book “Songs You Can’t Dance To” which is available at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Songs-You-Cant-Dance-Collection-ebook/dp/B00ATQW5XK
